For this year’s Brake Road Safety Week (20-24 November), the Safer Roads Humber partnership will be focusing on the theme ‘Let’s Talk About Speed’.
Safer Roads Humber are holding multiple activities across different schools in North East Lincolnshire, East Riding, North Lincolnshire and Hull.
The wide range of road safety activities include, holding events in primary schools for Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils, road safety presentations in secondary schools and colleges, and visits to uniform community groups, such as Scouts and cadets. These activities are focused on children and young people who are vulnerable road users.
In addition to this, two road safety plays will be performed to 14 different locations over the week to year 7, 11 and 13 students.
Several schools in North East Lincolnshire have been invited to take part and the following so far have confirmed Scartho Infants School, Scartho Junior Academy, St Peter’s C of E Primary Academy, and Wiz-Kidz Nursery.
An estimation of 5,000 people will be taking part in the events planned for the week by Safer Roads Humber.
North East Lincolnshire Council and its delivery partner, Equans, would like to thank Safer Roads Humber for organising these important road safety activities at schools, nurseries and colleges. We hope students have taken these road safety messages on board.
David Cullum, Road Safety Education Officer at Equans, said: “We enjoy being part of the Safer Roads Humber partnership as children and students in North East Lincolnshire can really benefit from road safety education on a regular basis. Educating students in the form of plays helps to convey important messages to them in an interactive and visual way that helps stick to their mind, proving to be a more useful way to teach them.”
