Watch Out! The Junior Road Safety Officers are about!
Junior Road Safety Officers from School have joined forces with the local Police Team again. As part of their roles, they have been carrying out the important task of monitoring the speed of vehicles on Seaside Lane. This main road is one that the majority of pupils who walk to school will cross, on their way to and from school. The children, alongside our local PCSO’s, did a great job in monitoring traffic and recording the speed of passing vehicles, together with driver details where necessary. As well as playing their part in the ‘Speed Watch’ activity, they also acted as a calming measure, reminding drivers of the dangers of speeding, especially so close to their primary school. The children take their Road Safety duties very seriously, and carry out other important roles in school such as; organising competitions, reminding their peers of the dangers on the roads during assemblies, and working with parents and visitors during Parking Monitoring tasks, ensuring they park safely and in the correct areas around the school. The School’s Road Safety team and Police were happy with the outcome of their activity, and are planning to carry out more tasks such as these in the new academic year. Their message they give to drivers around their school is to; ‘Watch out! The Junior Road Safety Officers are about!’
