Junior Road Safety Officers Appointed!
We are proud to have our two pupils selected by their peers to be Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs).
JRSOs help promote road safety issues within the school and local community. There is a range of informative, colourful and engaging resources in support of this scheme HERE.

About the JRSO scheme
The JRSO scheme is an effective and popular way to get serious road safety messages across to children and provides an opportunity to develop their communication skills. Pupils have the opportunity to deliver important road safety messages to the entire school community in a fun and innovative way.
The scheme involves a little input from teachers, but the main emphasis is placed on the appointed JRSOs. One of our Learning Support Assisstants has been nominated by the school to act as a school guide and to offer advice and support to the JRSOs. Now that the JRSOs have been appointed, they can work through their activity pack and will be provided with help and practical support if required.
Whilst the ideas and activities in the pack will give the JRSOs a good starting point, the scheme is flexible and they may come up with their own ideas.
The JRSO's role
The role of the JRSO is to spread road safety messages to the school community by:
- giving talks
- running competitions
- putting up posters
- using their own ideas to spread the message
There is an activity pack to help them get started.
