    Reporter, BBC Midlands Today

    There's growing concern over the number of children killed or injured in road accidents near schools.

    In 2016, there were more than 3,500 casualties under the age of 11, according to the Road Safety Observatory.

    Thistley Hough Academy in Stoke-on-Trent is getting drivers to sign a pledge that they'll take extra care as they're driving past.

    There are plans to improve road junctions near the school, including adding a new crossing and railings.

    Students are going to be carrying out their own speed survey to see whether drivers are slowing down.
