In order to raise awareness of Road Safety with our pupils we have been taking part in Kent County Council’s Small Steps Scheme.
Children in our Year 2 classes are being taught how to cross the road safely by Small Steps Instructors.

Website Excerpt: “The project is aimed at Year two children and involves parents, teachers & project staff working together to help make our children safer pedestrians. The children are taught essential skills of how to establish both safe and dangerous roadside situations and how to effectively deal with them.
The skills are taught over an eight week (One session per week) period giving the children time to absorb the information given between sessions and to build on what they have learnt. It is a foundation for a significant life skill and a highly effective way to impart pedestrian skills in young children.
The scheme is run by a Kent County Council Small Steps co-ordinator and the children are given practical roadside instruction by trained volunteer instructors. It is important that children and parents are aware that no child is being taught to cross roads on their own.”
