Support during Covid-19
At the moment we are not delivering hall based sessions or pedestrian training in schools however we are still here to help and support you in promoting Road Safety messages.
Playground based Cycling Training – If you had a test booked for the summer term which was cancelled – we can offer to test students either this summer term or in September (for your current year 5’s).
Starting School Getting There Safely - This leaflet is usually distributed each June to parents of those children starting reception class, hard copies will now be distributed in September - you can request an electronic copy.
Transition – A power point package for year 6 students moving on to secondary schools or for year 7’s in the new school term.
RouteGuard – This is an app which allows parents to plan a safe walking route with their child. Promoting independent travel for the child whilst providing re-assurance for parents with an alert system should the child deviate from the planned
walking route. RouteGuard is useful to promote with year 6/7 as they will begin making more independent journeys.
Social Distancing Artwork – Produced by Bradford Council’s Highways Services for use on school railings.
Pedestrian Training Film – Year 3 – This film is usually shown before children are taken out for roadside training. The film can be used as a stand-alone session and comes with a lesson plan. It is suitable for other year groups.
Bookings from September – Please email us to book/discuss sessions for the new academic year.
