Junior Road Safety Officers

The children enjoyed the Keep Moving Suffolks Walking Challenge and gained stickers for their class for each day they walked, cycled or scooted to school. Here are some images sent in to show the pupils enjoying their journeys to school. The winning class will win a non-uniform day. Watch this space to see who was successful.......

ROAD SAFETY WEEK 2021 To mark Road Safety Week all children across the school were involved in learning some valuable life lessons. Our fabulous Road Safety Officers first held a whole school assembly where they introduced themselves, their new role within the school and then discussed this year's theme with the children which was Road Safety Heroes. They went on to announce a fun competition for all students and arranged some wonderful prizes for our winners. We were overwhelmed with entries and so impressed with the effort put in. Well done if you are one of the children who entered.

Following this PC Greene, our local Community Engagement Officer joined us on the playground to hold workshops with the children focused on road safety, this was tailored to their age and year groups. This was fun and engaging and we hope all the children will remember the lessons they learnt.

The Road Safety Officers were then lucky enough to be taken out with PC Greene to operate the police speed gun and check that drivers around our school are sticking to the 30mph speed limit. We were pleased to see that everyone in our community was helping to keep our community safe and no one was pulled over.

2021 - 2022 We would like to welcome our new Junior Road Safety Officers, there was a huge response to the applications process this year and these lucky four were chosen from a record 57 entries. They have already made many plans for our Road Safety journey this school year and you will be hearing more from them again soon.

'We are incredibly proud of our 2018/2019 Junior Road Safety Officers who were awarded the highest level possible for their annual scrapbook submission, receiving the Gold Award. This reflects perfectly all their hard work. Well done Aaliyah, Thomas, Molly and Lily'.

Be Aware - Speed Checks!

 

On Friday April 5th, Reydon Primary School were fortunate enough to receive a visit from PC Simon Green, Community Engagement Officer, Halesworth Police Station. PC Green took the Junior Road Safety Officers out into the village to do some vehicle speed checks. PC Green trained the officers to use the speed gun and they all quickly picked up the necessary technique to begin checking vehicle speeds in our village. The children discussed the risks involved in cars driving too quickly through our community, especially so close to our wonderful school.

 

One member of the public was pulled over for exceeding the national speed limit, after official words of advice from PC Green the Junior Road Safety Officers were encouraged to offer some words of advice to the driver themselves. Those words can really be taken into consideration by all road users in our community "Please do not drive too quickly, especially as you are so close to a school, we wouldn't want you to hurt us or any of our fellow pupils"

PC Green remained at the school to take a whole school assembly and share some of his valuable knowledge with the children on how and when to make a 999 call

Street Feet Training
Just before February half term, our Junior Road Safety Officers became ‘teachers for an afternoon’ and deliveried basic road safety training to our early years pupils.

With the fantastic support of our mentor Ann at Suffolk Highways, the Junior Road Safety Officers quickly and confidently flew through their training session and couldn't wait to get started passing their knowledge on to the early years groups. As a team, they made the decision to deliver four back to back sessions, without a break in sight, so that all pupils in Reception and Year 1 could access this invaluable training.

All groups were left with three key pieces of information to remember and the Junior Road Safety Officers will be making some surprise visits to the classrooms to check that these remain fresh in their minds.

 

There are plans in place to roll out age specific training and information sharing so that all pupils in the school can be reached in some way by our Junior Road messages.

 

Well done team!
