Fancy becoming a Junior Road Safety Officer (JRSO) and helping other people at your school stay street safe? If your school is in Hampshire, you can!
To be part of the JRSO scheme, your school must join. Ask your teacher to contact your road safety officer for more information. Our activity packs tell you all you need to know to help keep your school street safe. They also include street safe posters, tips, fun activities you can use as competitions and lots more!
For those schools who missed out on the October training sessions, we have arranged some training around the county. Please see below for dates and venues and contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend one:

We are still looking for schools to host the training in the Basingstoke/Andover area and Alton area. Please contact us if you would be interested in hosting the training in these areas.
The JRSO scheme is in its fifth year and we now have JRSOs in 149 schools.
This year, we had over 200 JRSOs attend the two training days at Hampshire Court Hotel, Basingstoke and Botley Park Hotel, Boorley Green.
The children and teaching staff spent the day taking part in four interactive workshops, which taught them all about road safety. The workshops consisted of the successful Heart FM and t-shirt designing but also included an interactive Qwizdom activity and the Road Safety Toolkit, where children played games and visted road safety sites which they could use in school.
Finally, we need to say a huge thank you to South Wonston Primary School and Cove Junior School for supporting the events by presenting their JRSO experiences from last year. They all did a fantastic job and everyone found their contributions very helpful.
