Rail Safety

Due to the very high level of trespassing on the tracks by young people in our local area, Network Rail in partnership with Learn Live are working to help raise awareness to students by educating them about the dangers of the train tracks through interactive digital delivery.

Network rail asks you to share the relevant safety video with your teachers to show in class before the Easter holidays, as this is when Network Rail consistently sees a spike in trespassing.

We have made things easier for you to watch the safety videos by just entering the email railsafety@learnliveuk.com

  • Please note these are the recommended age ranges, we would always advise you to view the clips first to gauge suitability for your class.
  • The session is less than 15 minutes and explains why it is important to stay safe near the tracks. 
  • Over 1 million students, parents and teachers from across the UK have significantly decreased the number of trespasses in their area by watching the safety clip.

Primary school feedback - Brimsdown Primary School

"The children all watched the video very closely and were interested in the facts regarding trains.  This was compounded by seeing actual footage of children on the tracks. They just saw trains, as just that, trains.  Now they know how difficult it is to stop, how much they weigh and the dangers of walking along a track. They said they never really considered trains and rail lines to be that dangerous" They enjoyed the 'Rail rap'

Secondary school feedback - XP School 

"The students gave the video their full attention and they expressed their shock in certain parts. They were all transfixed and engaged. I think from the way the video began, which was quite light, the students really didn't expect something as hard-hitting as it was. Not one of them spoke during the video. After it had finished, we had a long discussion and not one of them knew that both train and overhead lines were live"

Thank you for supporting this message and for helping raise awareness to keep your young people safe.
