All children in Key Stages 1 and 2 can participate in the Pedestrian Training course. Somerset Road Safety is committed to reducing the casualty figures in this vulnerable group of road users.
Many children, especially from rural areas, are driven to school every day and are subsequently missing out on valuable road safety advice from their parents.
The practical Pedestrian Training course introduces children to various safe ways of crossing the road and looking out for dangers whilst walking on the pavement.
Teachers, classroom assistants and parents are invited to walk with the Road Safety Trainers out on the road with the children. The adult/child ratio is quite high but varies in the different age groups.
Your school can arrange one of these courses by contacting Somerset Road Safety
