Pedestrian Skills

Road safety specialists from For2Feet visited on Monday to provide pedestrian skills training for Year 4. The children learnt essential road safety skills that will make them safer pedestrians. Training was completed with experienced instructors on the pavements and roads around the school. The training reminded the children of Stop, Look and Listen, and included:  Finding a safe place to cross the road.  The correct use of pedestrian crossings such as zebra/pelican/island that are close to the school.  How to cross at junctions and near parked cars.  The dangers of cars reversing from driveways.  The importance of wearing bright clothing.  The dangers of distractions such as wearing headphones or using a mobile phone. We know that many families across the school will find the above list a useful starting point to talk to their children about this important subject.
