Traffic calming could be stepped up outside a West Norfolk school to stop irresponsible drivers flouting a 20mph speed zone.
Norfolk County Council says the existing speed reduction measures outside Reffley Primary School in Gaywood need to be made more effective.
Another local school, Heacham Junior School, is also in line to have a part-time 20mph restriction imposed along part of busy Cheney Hill at the back of the school.
Norfolk County Council has a £50,000 fund for 20mph speed limits outside schools.
A priority list is due to be considered by the Environment, Transport and Development Overview and Scrutiny Panel on Thursday.
The county council has carried out assessments at 22 schools and the amount of money available would enable about a quarter to go ahead.
Top of the list is Reffley Lane outside Reffley School where there are already 20mph speed restriction signs and speed reduction bumps.
A county council spokesman said: “Although there is already a reduced limit and some traffic calming, there are still problems. Concerns have been raised locally that the existing measures are just not working as well as they should be. The panel is being asked to review the 20mph restriction and how it can be made more effective.”
Headteacher Pamela Foskett said improvements would be welcomed from the pupil safety point of view.
She said: “If it’s going to be flashing signs, I hope drivers will observe them. The safety of our children is paramount.”
The panel will hear that five schools have so far been put on a priority list for part-time advisory 20mph signs.
Heacham Junior School is third on the list.
Its main entrance is in College Drive but there is also a second entrance in Cheney Hill.
A lollipop lady is already employed to help pupils and parents cross the stretch of road near the school safely.
Headteacher Nicola Darley said: “Cheney Hill is a busier road. I think a speed restriction near the school would be welcome.”
The three other schools considered to be most in need of part-time 20mph limits are St William’s Primary in Thorp St Andrew, Holt Primary and Scarning Primary.
The council spokesman said: “It is possible that more than five schools will be able to go ahead if costs allow.”
At its meeting on Thursday, the panel will be asked to consider some changes to the Norfolk Speed Management Strategy.
A report to members says new guidance from the Department for Transport recommends more consideration for 20mph limits.
Wider benefits including quality of life, support for cycling and walking should now be considered alongside safety and casualty reduction when setting speed limits.
On the more general use of 20mph limits, the revised strategy says they would be appropriate in areas of high concentrations of vulnerable road users, including busy shopping areas or some village centres and residential areas.
The Norfolk Residential Design Guide already states that new housing estates should be designed for 20mph speed limits.
