Northumberland school crossing patrol services are currently responsible for about 80 school crossing sites. School crossing patrols are not just for children. Our officers assist anyone seeking help in crossing the road safely and cross thousands of adults and children every year.

What sort of people become school crossing patrol officers?

If you are a community-minded individual and interested in helping others or working with the public, then becoming a patroller might suit you.   

You should be available between the hours of 8am to 9:15am and 2.50pm to 4.15pm, Monday to Friday.    

If you are interested, flexible job share applications are considered. 

How do I become a school crossing patrol officer & what is involved?

Applicants will be required to attend an interview, complete an occupational health check and have a disclosure and barring service check before they can be appointed.   

Once these have been cleared, the applicant will be contacted to arrange a start date. 

Do I get a uniform, am I trained & how much will I be paid?

All patrols will be issued with an approved coat, hat and crossing flag (lollipop stick). Full training will be provided by the county road safety officer.   

Staff are paid monthly and are only needed to work during school term-time.   

Officers are paid £10.50 per hour and are eligible to join the local government pension scheme.
