Other road safety activity

About this activity

Suitable for all schools and nurseries.

We know that your schools and nurseries are creative places and your pupils, staff and communities are bursting with ideas of how to get young London moving!

This is your chance to share your school’s own original road safety activity, different to anything else already listed on the STARS site.  

Work with your TFL Pioneers/Ambassadors, your school travel working group and colleagues to make a real difference to your school community's awareness of road safety. Also include and involve yourf Borough Travel Planning Officer.

Consider ideas to get pupils thinking, for example: a road safety bear dressed in its own hi-vis jacket to encourage pupils to learn the green cross code or gather pupils to work together in view of creating a giant montage in the playground displaying key road safety messages. This is an oppotunity to get creative!
