A BROMSGROVE school has come up with a unique way to try to solve problem parking at pick up times.

St Peter's Catholic First School will be using child-sized models and signs to warn motorists and hopefully improve safety.

The school has been awarded funding from councillors Luke Mallett and Chris Bloor, who recently stepped down.

Chris, who announced he is resigning and moving to Canada, said: "In the most recent local elections, many local parents contacted us about their concerns about dangerous parking outside St Peter's.

"Working with the school directly we worked on some ideas to prevent the very worst parking and decided to follow the lead of other schools who use child sized signs to warn motorists."

He added: "Making the roads around our schools safer is one of biggest priorities and Bromsgrove Labour has proposed some radical suggestions to improve school safety in Bromsgrove including reducing car access to areas surrounding schools.

"We will continue to lobby the district council to act urgently to catch up other local authorities such as Birmingham and Solihull who are pushing forward with such ideas."

"This news is a small step in the right direction of working with our schools to improve safety."

Councillors recently visited the school to celebrate the news.
