School Crossing Patrols

We currently have eight School Crossing Patrol sites, these are:

  1. Coast Road/Newton Road
  2. Great North Road/Broadway East
  3. Walker Road
  4. Whickham View
  5. Elswick Road outside Hawthorn Primary School
  6. Heaton Road/Meldon Terrace
  7. Armstrong Road outside St Joseph’s RC Primary
  8. Broadway East/Granville Road

As of the 21 July 2017, only sites 1 and 2 are funded by the Local Authority as these are classified as high risk sites requiring both formal crossing facilities and a School Crossing Patrol Officer. A decision was taken by Newcastle City Council to only fund these two posts as a response to ongoing budget reductions.

All other sites are externally funded but managed by the Road Safety Team.

For more information on how businesses and schools can fund their own School Crossing Patrol, please contact us at or on 0191 2115961.
