This week, from November 15th to 21st, it’s Road Safety Week. The need for a greater education on the dangers of the road is supported by some shocking statistics. According to the road safety charity, Brake, who also organise the annual event, someone is killed or seriously injured on our country’s roads every 20 minutes.
Brake also runs the National Road Victim Service, and you can find out more about the work they do here: https://www.brake.org.uk/.
This year’s theme is . Encompassed in this theme is “Be a Road Safety Hero” focussing on the great work of road safety professionals. As a school, we are fully behind the campaign. By talking to our children about potential dangers we are able to help them develop the right attitude toward road usage as they grow up.
The best way to make our roads safe is through education and this Road Safety Week is the perfect opportunity to emphasise the right messages. There remains a commitment toward safety at our school, and if you have any concerns about road safety around the school, please let us know.
