Road Safety Week 2021

Monday 15th November 2021 marked the start of Road Safety Week 2021 and we had a very busy week.

The children have been working with the local Road Safety Team throughout the week and our very own Road Safety Officers put together a fantastic assembly for the whole school, we were very proud of them.

On Tuesday, Dave Ashton from the North Yorkshire Police Traffic Bureau paid us a visit with his speed camera van.  The children were able to see how the camera worked and had lots of great questions for Dave.  Dave was really impressed with the children and sent us a lovely message:

"I would like to thank your staff and especially the children for making me feel very welcome.  It was such a joy to see the children's smiling faces.  What a lovely group of children they are, very polite and some lovely chatty characters.  I could have stayed all day."

On Wednesday, we were very privileged to welcome Lauren Doherty and Sergeant Paul Cording to tell us about the importance of road safety.  In 2008, Lauren was involved in a serious road traffic accident and suffered life changing injuries.  It is now Lauren's mission to educate both children and adults about road awareness and safe behaviour.  Lauren was recently shortlisted for a local heroes award and we hope you will join us in voting for her by clicking here.

To find out more about Lauren's story, you can visit her website here.  You can also donate to Lauren's charity here.

Some of our Year 5/6 children were also lucky enough to take part in a two day Bikeability course this week, the aim of which is to give children the confidence and skills to cycle out and about safely on the road.  We had some lovely feedback from the trainers about how engaged and enthusiastic the children were.
