Main issues to be urgently dealt with, especially whilst the one way system to enter and leave the school remains in place:

The warning sign (see photo) on Aston road is totally hidden behind overgrown bushes - suggest cutting back urgently

The warning sign also states PATROL but this does not exist - suggest this is needed urgently

Aston road is a country road that is 60mph for a large part and hence people do not slow until well after the 30mph sign (or at all!) meaning they are driving extremely fast past the school - suggest reducing Aston Road limit significantly and all roads around school to 20mph as they have been around the other Haddenham schools and around the village

Generally reducing the speed to 20mph as it has been in a large part of the village including near the other schools

No path between the church and school means pushchairs, pedestrians, children on scooters/bikes etc are in the middle of the road (especially if cars parked against the grass verge) - suggest parking restrictions to be introduced for school drop off / pick up hours (unless permits) for example

The crossing near the church path could do with some crossing / patrol (to help cross the road and slow traffic) at such a large and busy junction
