Road Safety

Home » News » Road Safety

The children across school had a fun time today in school learning a very serious lesson — how to keep safe as a pedestrian near a road.

The two gentlemen who first led KS1 and KS2 assemblies, then took the children outside to learn more about road safety. As part of their learning, every child (and a few staff) climbed up into the cab of the lorry they had travlled in. They gained a greater understanding of the difficulties that lorry drivers can face when near pedestrians with reduced visibility of the road from being so high up and KS2 have gained an understanding of stopping distances.

We thank the two gentlemen from GIST for making the sessions informatiove and enjoyable and for the high vis jackets we have received.
