Road safety is a great project to study with children and young people aged 2 to 22.
It's a subject that even the youngest children know something about because everyone uses roads, and road crashes are a major killer among the young, with the risk rising as children reach secondary school age and have more independence. It's also important to address road safety in school policies and protocols to protect children and young people on trips.
First get enthused about the topic and find out the basics on teaching road safety effectively by reading our Introductory guide to teaching road safety.
Then browse the links below for road safety teaching tips, downloads, and policy guidance for teachers of children and young people of all ages.
Consider timing your road safety learning around our events for schools and nurseries. Read more about our Beep Beep Day for early years, our Giant Walking Bus for children, our 2young2die campaign and competition for pupils aged 11 to 25, and National Road Safety Week.
