If appointed a full DBS is required.

Although the Council regards the provision of a school crossing patrol service as an important contribution to the safety of children in County Durham, this provision is a permissive function rather than a statutory obligation of the council and it must be appreciated that parental responsibility is in no way diminished by the exercise of this service.


Therefore, until a new permanent patrol is appointed, we continually remind parents & carers to exercise care when sending their children to school, remembering that some children may not be capable of assessing traffic speed and distance, and may experience difficulty crossing on their own.


If you are interested or know of anyone else who would be interested in carrying out this worthwhile duty, please contact the Road Safety Team for an informal discussion on 03000 268168 or apply directly via the Council website: [closing date 29.10.2020]
