Students learn about the importance of road safety

MOST READ

During Road Safety Week last week, children from Kingswood Primary School learned about the importance of road safety and raising awareness of the dangers of excess and inappropriate speed. 

As part of their personal, social and health education, the children aged 4-11 discussed staying safe and learning vital life skills. They also designed road safety posters on speed and parking which will be displayed in the village. 

The school aims to provide a secure and stimulating environment in which children can be, among other things, creative thinkers, responsible and caring citizens and are able to lead a healthy lifestyle. 

Headteacher Wendy Collins, said: “We feel it is vital for our children to gain an awareness of road safety and how to keep themselves safe. We are excited at the prospect of gaining a greater understanding of the benefits and challenges of our local area during Road Safety week.”

Sian Blackham, parent and member of Kingswood Village Road Safety Group, added:“We’re delighted to see the Kingswood Primary School engaging with Road Safety Week. It’s so important for children to walk to school – it’s good for their health and the environment.

“Our community really cares about the safety of our children, but we need everyone to play their part. We’re asking all drivers to reduce their speed when driving through the village and to think carefully about where they park to avoid causing an obstruction or hazard.”

Prizes for the best poster designs were awarded during the whole school assembly on Friday.
