Knollmead Primary School

Road Safety Officers

Road Safety Officers 

Our role is to help make sure that everyone has good road safety sense at Knollmead Primary School. We have spoken about this in whole school assembly and we are on duty with a member of staff at the start and end of each day to supervise the crossing within the school grounds.  

Our key messages to all Knollmead children have been:

1. First find the safest place to cross the road

Look out for safe crossing spots eg zebra, pelican or toucan crossings as well as islands, subways or crossings controlled by a traffic warden.

Aim to cross at a spot where they can see clearly in all directions and where they can be seen, so not between parked cars.

2. When crossing the road stop just before you get to the kerb

Do not stand too close to the edge of the kerb and take your time looking around for traffic.

3. Look all around for traffic and listen

4. If traffic is coming, let it pass

It's always better to take your time and wait for all traffic to pass. 

5. When it is safe, go straight across the road - but do not run

 Keep looking and listening as you cross the road
