Pedestrian safety training for children
What training we provide to children to help them get to school safely on foot, on a bike or a scooter.
We provide pedestrian road safety training for primary school children in Brighton & Hove. The training is practical and provided during school time in year 1 (age 5 to 6 years) and year 3 (age 7 to 8 years).
We designed the training to:
- help children be aware of danger while crossing roads with an adult
- provide children with road safety skills in preparation for going out on their own
All schools taking part will get help and advice in setting up the training from the Child Road Safety Training Co-ordinator.
Child Pedestrian Training can help reduce the number of child casualties on the roads. The number of child pedestrian fatalities in the UK is high compared to other European countries. Children aged between 11 and 15 are the most at risk.
