Junior Road Safety Officers (led by Mrs Nicholls)
Mrs Nicholls: email@example.com
This group of children will help to promote active travel to school and road safety. Building on the success of our bronze travel mode-shift star last academic year, we will be working towards achieving our silver star. This is a scheme supported by MK council which encourages cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable and active travel. We will be promoting lots of initiatives throughout the first term such as World Car Free Day, Bike to School week and Road Safety Week.
Meet our newly elected JRSOs: Daniel, Zac, Beau, Amelia, Sofia and Ava!
Autumn term update:
We were very proud to be awarded our silver STARS badge last year and are committed to working towards our gold badge this year.
JRSOs have started the year by helping to run skateboarding sessions for all the children in year three and those in year four who missed out last year. The weather wasn’t kind to us but the children enjoyed the sessions held in the hall. The JRSOs helped children put on the important safety gear needed and helped run the session making sure it was safe and enjoyable for all. The sessions were held at no cost to families because we were awarded a grant to run them. We are looking forward to further activities and events in the new year.
Autumn term update:
We were very proud last year to regain our STARS status (Sustainable Travel: Active, Responsible, Safe) as a bronze school for all the work we have been doing to try to inspire the children and their parents to travel to school sustainably, actively, responsibly and safely by championing walking, scooting and cycling. We will be working towards earning our silver STARS badge this year.
The first event championed by our year 5 JRSOs was our 'Dr Bike' sessions which took place in November.
Spring term update:
We are really pleased to be able to meet again this term. We have been working towards our silver travel mode-shift star badge. This is an initiative supported by MK council which encourages active travel. Ellie Williamson from the council came to school to tell the JRSOs all about it. We have helped to run skateboarding and scooter sessions with year three and year four. The children learnt loads of new tricks and it will hopefully encourage them to use their scooters to travel to school. We have also taken part in the big walk and wheel which encourages everyone to think about how they travel to school and make more active choices where possible. We’ve got lots of other things planned for summer term.
Summer term update:
3x bikeability courses were provided for children in year 5 and 6.
The JRSOs are delighted that after years of hard work and liaison with MK council, the 'School Streets' pilot was implemented on Bradwell Road. This has made the busy road outside our main gate safer, calmer and the air cleaner for our children.
