Road Safety Week
About this activity
Suitable for all schools and nurseries. Supports the PSHE and Citizenship National Curriculum.
NB: We’re bringing together all the TfL education programmes, including STARS, under one exciting new umbrella programme called TfL Travel for Life. They will be the same great programmes but with a new name and a new look, easier online process and dedicated support team. STARS for primary schools will be renamed TfL Explorers. STARS for secondary schools will be renamed TfL Pioneers.
Road Safety Week is an annual event that takes place in November coordinated by Brake. The awareness week aims to inspire communities to take action on road safety and promote life-saving messages.
The theme of this year’s UK Road Safety Week, run by Brake, the road safety charity, will be ‘Let’s talk about speed’. This year’s UK Road Safety Week campaign takes place between 19 and 25 November 2023 and will bring communities and professionals together to talk about speed.
The Road Safety Week website has lots of ideas about how your school can get involved as well as information about this year’s theme on which you can focus your activities. Register to take part to receive an email action pack with guidance and resources.
If you are a secondary school you could also make use of the Teen Awareness Road Safety Campaign
