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!
2016 - 2017 District training dates:
The Road Safety Team have booked October's training dates already. The details are:

If you would like to register for the scheme and to attend the training, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Be Bright Be Seen assembly
Demonstrate to your school the importance of being bright so traffic can see you more quickly.
Green Cross Code assembly
Use the Green Cross Code statements to teach your peers how to cross the road safely. Don't forget to show the Tales of the Road advert to reinforce the Stop, Look and Listen message!
Game Over presentation and notes.
Use the presentation in an assembly to teach your peers about the importance of not being distracted whilst walking.
Seatbelt and car seat presentation and notes.
Use this presentation to teach your peers about the laws and importance of wearing a seatbelt and using the correct car seat.
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!
