Road Safety Teaching Resources for Primary Schools

Monday 29th March 2010

Many people are unaware that the number of fatalities amongst young people caused by road accidents is higher than deaths from other external causes, including those that receive much more publicity from the media. In 2007, 55 children aged 0 - 11 years were killed on Britains roads. Another 1,546 were seriously injured. There is a need for all those involved with children to teach clear road safety messages effectively and consistently, working together to help children understand and manage risk.
THINK! Education is the Department for Transports suite of road safety resources for teachers, parents and pupils, including guidance on planning and delivering effective road safety education, teaching ideas, curriculum links, activities and work sheets.

The website for early years (Under 5s), lower primary (Key Stage 1) and upper primary (Key Stage 2) includes a wealth of road safety information, fun ideas and resources for pupils, teachers and parents.  The resources are designed to be used flexibly, with mix and match lesson ideas. Resources have been provided in a variety of formats to suit different learning styles. There are posters, online big books, stories, songs, interactive whiteboard activities, activity sheets, homework sheets, audio clips and videos. Timings, resource lists and curriculum links are also provided.
