This term our Reception children are taking part in Lancashire County Councils’ Stage 1 Right Start Child Pedestrian Training Programme. This Programme teaches them to keep themselves safe when out and about in the traffic environment. They will be taught how important it is that they stop behind the kerb and both look and listen before crossing the road with a responsible adult that they know. They will be reminded to play in a safe place away from traffic and wear bright clothing.

RIGHT START PEDESTRIAN TRAINING – Stage 3
This term our year 2 – year 6 children are taking part in Lancashire County Councils’ Stage 3 Right Start Child Pedestrian Training Programme.

They will also be taught to look for a ‘safer place’ to cross such as zebra crossing, pelican crossing, traffic island, etc. and that whenever possible they should cross away from parked cars. They will also now recognise the signals that cars give – indicators, break lights, reverse lights, etc.
