Road Safety

Road Safety Week is always a busy week in school.

The children work with the local Road Safety Team throughout the week and our very own Road Safety Officers put together a fantastic assembly for the whole school.

In the past we have welcomed Dave Ashton from the North Yorkshire Police Traffic Bureau with his speed camera van.  The children are able to see how the camera works and always have lots of great questions.  Dave was really impressed with the children and sent us a lovely message:

"I would like to thank your staff and especially the children for making me feel very welcome.  It was such a joy to see the children's smiling faces.  What a lovely group of children they are, very polite and some lovely chatty characters.  I could have stayed all day."

We have also been very privileged to welcome Lauren Doherty and Sergeant Paul Cording to tell us about the importance of road safety.  In 2008, Lauren was involved in a serious road traffic accident and suffered life changing injuries.  It is now Lauren's mission to educate both children and adults about road awareness and safe behaviour.  

To find out more about Lauren's story, you can visit her website here.  You can also donate to Lauren's charity here.

Our Year 6 children also take part in a two day Bikeability course each year, the aim of which is to give children the confidence and skills to cycle out and about safely on the road.  We always receive lovely feedback from the trainers about how engaged and enthusiastic the children are.
