8.3.1. The sign to diagram 545 (S2‑2‑25, see Figure 8-6) is used to warn of the likelihood of encountering children in the road ahead, going to a school or playground. It must be used in combination with one of the supplementary plates shown in Figure 8-7 to Figure 8-10. When used in combination with the “School”, “Patrol” or “Disabled children” (and its variants) plates it may also be combined with the light signals shown in diagram 4004 (S14‑2‑23, see Figure 8-11). It should be sited to ensure adequate warning is given; this might require a greater distance than specified in Appendix A for signs warning of fixed hazards. A distance, an arrow (pointing to the left or to the right) or both may be added to the plate in accordance with the working drawings. 8.3.2. When combined with “School” or “Patrol”, the sign may be provided where children cross the road on their way to or from school, or from one part of a school to another. In most cases they should be restricted to the immediate area outside of a school or where significant numbers of children cross away from a school. If the school or playground caters exclusively or predominantly for disabled, blind or deaf children, the associated plate (see Figure 8-10) should PEDESTRIANS 49 be used with the sign to diagram 545. “Disabled children” may be varied to “Blind children” or “Deaf children”.
