We believe that good safe and active travel habits begin as soon as children start education. It is an ideal time for learning new skills and influencing behaviour by effective and practical learning.
Warwickshire Safe and Active Schools is an exciting concept that mixes established themes with a new way of presenting ideas to children and young people, combining essential road safety education with practical ideas and resources to support and encourage safe and active travel. As part of this approach; we encourage the whole school, parents and local community to become interested, informed and involved.
Every Safe and Active School is supported by an experienced and dedicated Road Safety Officer, who liaises with the Headteacher, teachers and the school office, delivering the road safety education workshops and supporting School Champions to help make a difference and encourage safe and active travel in their school. Safe and Active Schools runs around an annual programme – this allows us to spread safe and active travel messages throughout the academic year and provides advance notice about what is happening and when.
