In the twenty-first century the numbers of cars and other vehicles on our roads is increasing all the time and it is ever more important for all young people to understand the potential risks and dangers.
Learning to stay safe on our busy roads is a complex task. At Woodland Grange we believe it is vital to teach our pupils how to be safe passengers, pedestrians & cyclists. Working together with parents, pupils and the school community is the only way we can ensure that we are safe when we are out and about.
What we do at Woodland Grange
- Walk to school week – every year we encourage as many pupils in 'walk to school week' organised by
- Remind children when going out of school (Forest school, swimming or school trips).
- JRSO – each year we appoint Junior Road Safety Officers in school. They help to encourage all pupils to stay safe around school. They link to the Leicestershire County Council scheme to encourage school-age children to be safe.
- Cycle proficiency – we want all pupils to feel safe when cycling or scooting. We encourage pupils to seek training in ‘bikeability’.
- Parking at school (including the school car park) – we know that the majority of our parents are safe and considerate when parking in or near school. We highlight any improper parking in our school newsletter. We remind all parents to consider local residents when parking outside of school especially when using our school car park.
