Formby pupils have designs on making roads around their school safer after taking part in an initiative launched by Labour councillor Nina Killen.

Pupils at Trinity St Peter's were the first to take part in the scheme which schools across Formby are involved in, which is designed to tackle the potentially dangerous issue of car parking outside schools during peak drop off and pick-up times.

Harington Ward's Cllr Killen launched the scheme which has seen pupils draw up rules for making roads around the school safer. They have drafted contracts which they want their parents to sign up to and a competition was held for pupils to design posters which will be displayed outside the school urging motorists to take more care.

Trinity St Peter's winning designers are:

1st: Maisie Campbell-Myatt - who won a £25 book voucher
2nd: Katie Burnett - who won a £10 book voucher
3rd: Sophie Everett - who won a £5 book voucher

The designs will now be professionally printed into all-weather signs and displayed around the school.

Cllr Killen said she was delighted that so many pupils at Trinity St Peter's took part.

Cllr Killen said: "The posters were brilliant - the children did a fantastic job and it was so difficult to pick the best three.

"Thank you so much to the school council and the staff for really driving this project forward.

"I know from personal experience from driving with my own children in the car that the children are policing this themselves and reminding parents what they have signed up to!

"We're now hoping to have the posters made into signs and banners around the school entrance which will be great for the children to see their work on display.

"We are at various stages with this project at other schools and I am looking forward to seeing the posters from all schools across Formby."
