School crossing patrols

School crossing patrols are there to help children cross roads en-route to school, making sure that travel to and from school is as safe as possible. They are not necessarily located directly outside a school, but could be anywhere on a popular, direct route.

There are currently 71 school crossing patrols in Trafford.

How to request a patrol

Requests for additional school crossing patrols usually come through the appropriate school's headteacher. If you feel like an additional patrol is required somewhere, you should initially raise this with your child's school.

Patrol vacancies

If you are interested in joining the service, vacancies are advertised on the Greater Jobs website.
