Downs Juniors needs grown-ups to keep pupils safe!

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, Downs Junior pupils have staggered start times so they gather in waves,outside the school gates in Grantham Road.
They and their parents are being given more space to socially distance while they wait by closing that part of Grantham Road to motor vehicles temporarily each school morning, from 8.15am to 9.15am. 
Volunteer marshalls close the street with plastic barriers, letting authorised vehicles through occasionally, chatting for a while and then reopening the street by removing the barriers. 
It’s easy, helps the community, gives you some fresh air and gives everyone a feelgood at the start the day. 
Most importantly, the kids stay safely distanced in the street while waiting for their staggered entry times.
Please will you help by volunteering? Contact the office at Downs Juniors to say you’re interested in the School Street. Phone 01273 558422 or email office@downsjun.brighton-hove.sch.uk.
