For many years the Schools Crossing Patrol Service has played an important role in ensuring the safety of our children when travelling to and from school. Usually situated outside or in the vicinity of the school, SCP not only assists children but, following a change in the law, can also help other pedestrians to cross the road safely. Some schools encounter difficulty recruiting SCPs so if you are interested in helping as a SCP please contact your local school.
SCPs provide a valuable service within our communities and this dedication is recognised by Somerset Road Safety.

All crossing patrols are employed by the school from which they usually operate. Somerset County Council provides grants to offset the costs to the school.
In the past a number of sites have received sponsorship from local businesses and this partnership between business and local schools is actively encouraged.
School crossing patrols receive initial on-site training and ongoing training and support together with an annual health and safety inspection carried out by members of Somerset Road Safety.
Equipment and uniform are provided free of charge by Somerset Road Safety and have to conform to strict rules of compliance.
