2016 - 2017 District training dates:

The Road Safety Team have booked October's training dates already. The details are:

  • Friday 30 September 2016 - Hampshire Court Hotel, Basingstoke

  • Botley Park Hotel 2016 - Botley Park Hotel, Boorley Green

If you would like to register for the scheme and to attend the training, please email jrso@hants.gov.uk

 

The JRSO scheme is now in it's successful 7th year this year and is continuing to grow. After the two annual training days and extra district training sessions, we currently have JRSOs in 181 schools across Hampshire.

The annual training days in October were a great success and as the photos below show, the children enjoyed t-shirt designing, recording radio adverts with Heart FM as well as playing snakes and hazards and investigating faults on a bike. All of the activities give the children the opportunity to not only learn about road safety but also gain ideas for how they can teach their peers back in school about staying safe.

I have been lucky enough to visit so many schools this half term and have been extremely impressed with all the efforts the JRSO teams have been doing. Below are some examples of work and ideas from other schools which you could do in your school

Harrison Primary School

The JRSOs organised an Easter Egg hunt with a road safety quiz. The children had to answer clues and at each clue location, they had to answer a road safety question. If they answered all the road safety questions correctly, they got an extra prize at the end. Why not download the quiz to use at a summer fayre in your school!
