Child pedestrian safety

In year 3 children are invited to take part in the Richmond Safe Walking pedestrian training scheme.

About the scheme

This is a practical road side training course which encourages children to think about the dangers of traffic, understand and deal with hazards and to plan routes that make use of crossing facilities where they are available.

The need to have their parents' permission for crossing roads on their own as they grow up is emphasised. The best way for children to convince their parents that they will be safe is by showing them the lessons they have learned on this training when out and about.

Please contact the Safety Education Team for more information.
