Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs)
This initiative gives pupils the opportunity to lead on promoting road safety to their school communities - in a fun way, while getting serious road safety messages across.
Cycling to school:
It has been brilliant to see so many children cycling to school with their parents. Please can I remind ALL parents that if you allow your child to cycle to school, they MUST wear a cycle helmet. In today’s day and age, with the amount of traffic we have on the roads, it is so important to help keep the children safe from serious accidents. Thank you for your support.
What is WoW?
WoW is a scheme run by Living Streets, the charity behind the national Walk to School campaign, which encourages families to walk to school at least once a week. At the end of each month, children who walked at least once every week will receive a special collectable pin badge. There is a different badge to collect for each month of the school year.
What is involved?
The main focus of the project will be the ‘Walk once a Week’ (WoW) initiative which all of our pupils can participate in.
What if we can’t walk to school?
Even if you live too far away or don’t have time to walk the whole way to school, all children can participate in WoW by walking at least 5-10 minutes to school.
Why are we encouraging walking to school?
Under half of UK children walk to school and this number is decreasing, while the number of children being driven to school has doubled in the last 20 years. Our school is taking part because of the many benefits we believe it will bring to our children and the community.
If you have any questions about the programme, please contact Mrs Arnold or visit www.livingstreets.org.uk/walktoschool for more information. We hope that you join in with this fun project so your family can enjoy the benefits of walking to school!
