Parents' fears over speeding outside Oldfield Primary School

A concerned mother-of-three has said there is 'no excuse' for drivers who speed in Chiltern Road.

Julia Andrews is one of a number of parents who are becoming increasingly worried about the safety of their children who attend Oldfield Primary School.

The Tithe Barn homeowner regularly drops off and collects her eight-year-old daughter from the school.

She said: "The 20mph limit is there for a reason; it's a residential area with a school.

"As a parent I am terribly concerned about my child. It is such a highly populated area you just cannot believe the stupidity of it."

On Tuesday last week the beauty therapist became so alarmed by the speed a car was travelling she went to confront the driver when they had parked up.

She received a 'tirade of abuse' when she had attempted to talk to the driver.

Rosana Dirkin, whose eight-year-daughter also attends the school, has already contacted her PCSO to try and address the issue.

The Cotswold Close householder said: "The residents are a bit concerned about how quick cars come, we have lots of children playing on the pavement.

Headteacher of Oldfield Primary School, Mr Richard Jarret, said it is attempting to deal with the problem by communicating to parents through school correspondence.
