Theatre in Education
About this activity
Suitable for primary and secondary school pupils.
Hold a Theatre in Education (TIE) session to bring issues around road safety and active travel to life at your school.
Interactive TIE sessions allow pupils to engage with common real-life travel and safety situations in a safe environment, provoking discussion and creativity.
TIE is delivered by professional educational theatre companies who are used to working with schools to understand their pupils’ particular travel needs.
Contact your borough officer to discuss the TIE opportunities available in your local area.
Running the activity
TIE sessions work well when delivered during an assembly. Ensure you have a big enough space and any necessary technology required such as wifi or an electronic whiteboard.
To get the most out of your session, make sure you complete any pre-workshop activities, questionnaires and discussions with your pupils.

- Involve your borough officer: Share your ideas, agree your objectives and discuss any challenges you face
- Record the feedback from your pupils after the TIE session
- Sign in to STARS to add your story. Explain the activity, add photos of the session in action and include your pupils’ feedback
