The full list schools which could see their lollipop patrols axed under council cost-cutting plans can today be revealed.
Primaries across the borugh will be affected by the move, which was sparked by St Helens Council’s drive to save £20.3m over the next three years.
Officials say the axing the service, which they say they have no legal duty to fulfil, will save the council £130,000 per year.
Council chiefs are proposing to stop providing the service and transfer responsibility to schools.
Alternatively, they could stop the service at low risk sites or those with traffic calming measures in place.
A public consultation exercise have been launched this week, with members of the encouraged to have their say on the council’s plans.
A council spokesman said: “With this in mind, the council has opened a public consultation with a view of ceasing the traditional offer by transferring the responsibility of school crossing patrol delivery to schools – or by disestablishing low risk sites or remove those with safety engineering measures already in place. Should the consultation identify a suitable alternative to the current provision, the savings forecast to be achieved over the year would be £130,000.”
