How Useful is Road Safety Education in Schools?

Happy Children

The summer months are approaching and the days are getting longer. This is children’s favourite time of year. They can more easily play outside, walk to friends’ houses and maybe even make their own way to and from school. But what kids don’t think about are the dangers inherent in these activities. Each year, and particularly in the summer months, an unacceptable amount of children are hit by cars in Britain. According to recent research , road accidents account for a third of accidental deaths among 0-14-year-olds and over half of accidental deaths for 5-14-year-olds. Tragically, many of these deaths are avoidable. The answer is road safety education. This article will discuss how road safety education in schools can significantly reduce the frequency of these incidents, and improve the safety and wellbeing of children in Britain.

Brand New Road Safety Education Tools Launched this Week

Road Safety Education Range

Belisha Beacon Set

Take a look at the new addition to our Road Safety Education Range, brand new this week.

Over the past few months I have been busy speaking with hundreds of key buyers (as most of you already know!) and I would like to thank you all for your time. 

The new addition to the Road Safety Education Range is the Belisha Beacon Set.  The set is used to instruct children how to follow road safety procedures.  We feel this is a great addition as research has shown that something lightweight and easy to move around is just what is needed.  This set literally includes what is required and nothing else, which makes it ultra-portable – a bit of good news for all those keen cyclists out there! 

We are still developing our Road Safety Education Range, and we have some great things in the pipeline – so watch this space.

 For further information, please call me on 08450 66 66 99 or email serena@kelticclothing.co.uk.  I’d love to hear from you.

Street Feet Resource now available at Keltic!

Street Feet ResourceAs promised, here at Keltic we have been busy working on our Road Safety Education Range and here’s our new addition for this week – The ever so popular Street Feet Resource!  The kit is designed for use with Key Stage 1 children (ages 3 – 7).  It is designed to help children practice crossing the road safely whilst being in a safe environment.  Children can play the part of different road users which makes them aware of road use patterns and they can then start to realise their responsibilities as a road user. 

Street Feet is lightweight and easy to use.  Kids love role play – it’s a fact, so this is a great fun way of helping kids to take in key information that can help save lives.

Keep checking the blog and watch our range grow every week! 

For more information, please call Serena Groom on 08450 66 66 99 or email serena@kelticclothing.co.uk We’d love to hear from you!
