Theatre in Education

About this activity

Suitable for primary and secondary school pupils. Supports the English, Drama and PSHE and Citizenship National Curriculum.

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.
