Although the Council regards the provision of a school crossing patrol service as an important contribution to the safety of children in County Durham, this provision is a permissive function rather than a statutory obligation of the council and it must be appreciated that parental responsibility is in no way diminished by the exercise of this service.
Therefore, until a new permanent patrol is appointed, we continue to remind parents & carers to exercise care when sending their children to school, remembering that children of the younger age group concerned are not normally capable of assessing traffic speed and distance, and may experience difficulty in crossing certain roads on their own.
If you are interested, or know of anyone else who would be interested in carrying out this worthwhile duty, please contact the Road Safety Team for an informal discussion on 03000 268168 or apply directly via the Council website: [closing date 07.10.2019].

Pupils from Years 4, 5 and 6 took part in a creative writing and local heritage project during spring and summer term 2019. They researched the experiences of men who fell in the Great War 1914-18 as named on our war memorial, as well as studying the impact of the Great War on the Home Front at Tow Law. This was funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund and facilitated through Building Self-Belief ClO. We would like to thank Peter and Christine Thomas for making this project so worthwhile.
