We feel that the playground used by the P1 and P2 pupils of Mid Calder Primary School is a danger to the children and staff and that something should be done immediately to resolve this situation.
Why is this important?
The playground surface is slippery and the surrounding borders unsuitable and a health risk with the children being covered in mud at playtimes. There is a metal pipe protruding from the playground next to the gate and the metal steps leading in and out of the school are slippery in the cold and wet weather. We also feel that the surrounding fence is not at an adequate height to keep the children safe from the busy road. There is inadequate supervision of the playground at morning drop-off.
