Secondary School resources

Can anyone provide, or point me in the right direction for some interactive road safety resources for Year 8 pupils and above? A local school has recently had a child seriously injured whilst crossing a pedestrian crossing facility when the driver had a green light to go!! Anything aimed at road safety for this age group is desperately needed?? The school would like to address with a special assembly, so Powerpoint would be good.

Secondary School Resource

Hello Rob

have you had a look at Ghost Street the short film I made for secondary school pupils? I couldn't find any resources for yerar 7 + pupils at all so I made the film to help fill the gap. If you haven't seen it have a look at www.ghoststreet.co.uk and you can see the trailer.

Regards

Cheryl

Secondary school RS materials

Hi - Sussex Safer Roads parnership have produced Routes - which is launched in October - which would be ideal for this. Ian.Jones@westsussex.gov.uk is the project manager for this. It's been piloted in our area and tweaked since. I tend to aim stuff at Yr10+ so haven't got anything for yr8 - apart from Routes soon.
All best

The Right Way or No Way

Hi,
Have a look at our resource at www.highways.gov.uk/youngpedestrians. It was developed for use at the end of year 6, early Year 7, as the youngsters are gaining that sudden independence they get in the summer before "Big School!

There are supportive lesson plans/ideas for leaders. I hope it can be of use.

If you've not seen it I can also send you a copy of "Worst Hits", our resource for young drivers (or anything else you fancy from www.highways.gc.uk/DIP !)

Good luck,
Julie
