School Crossing Patrol

Would you like to help our children get to and from school safely?

Crossing patrols provide a vital service to all pedestrians, and young people in particular, on their journey to and from schools.

The service provides 180 crossing sites within the Leeds boundary. Patrols are employed to ensure pedestrians cross to and from school safely and are legally empowered to stop traffic. The Road Traffic Act now enables crossing patrols to assist any pedestrian, not just children in crossing.

We currently have vacancies at various locations throughout the city. This post will appeal to people who are willing to work outdoors, have a good road sense, and enjoy working with people and helping the local community.

Applications are welcome from persons aged between the ages of 18 and 70. If you are interested or would like more information about school crossings please contact Leeds City Council Crossing Patrol Department using the contact details below.
