Road safety in schools


Brighton & Hove City Council are keen to work with schools, and we therefore provide schools with a number of road safety services. These include Child Pedestrian Training, Cycle Training, School Travel Plans, Safer Routes to Schools and School Crossing Patrols. We have also had theatre in education tours in both secondary and primary schools. These have highlighted issues related to travelling to school and those for potential new drivers/riders and their passengers.

Road safety loan resources

The Road Safety Team provide a comprehensive selection of road safety resources which can be borrowed by schools. These include road safety videos, books, games, photographs, activity packs and computer software.
