PUPILS at a Sandiacre school have launched a campaign to stop parents parking too close to the school gates.

Children at Ladycross Infants were also taught about safety on the way to school.

Healthy Schools co-ordinator, Elaine Latimer, said: “Walking or scooting to school is a great way to keep fit and healthy and at our school we want to encourage children to walk at least part, if not all, of their journey if they can. “We also want to make sure children are safe by encouraging drivers not to park around the school and for children to dress brightly so they can be seen.”
