At Ryefield Primary we promote Road Safety and Sustainable travel through our School Travel Plan. Last year we were accredited with Gold status which required a massive 25 initiatives to be completed during the school year. Ryefield completed 36 initiatives across the year. This was achieved with the help of our commited Junior and Mini Road Safety Officers. This year we will continue to organise activities so that we will maintain our Gold status.
Below are some of the exciting events we have taken part in.
Walk to School month competition this year was to create a poem about road safety and sustainable travel. Seven of our entries have been selected to form part of the Boroughs anthology. Awards will be presented in the Summer term.
Pedestrian Training for Years 4 & 5 took place in September. Children were introduced to the basics of Road Safety in a fun and interactive way.
In February the JRSO's attended Dragons Den at the Winston Churchill Hall where they pitched for funds to purchase an iPad to assist them in theri roles.
