Today Year 7 were visited by the Performance in Education team delivering important messages about being careful by the roads.
Shockingly, road traffic accidents are in the top three killers for teenagers. Even more shockingly, most accidents happen in 30mph zones and between 3-4pm at night when pupils are walking home.
This correlation reveals that young people need to take greater care and ensure no distractions whilst walking. The presentation was about the dangers of using mobile phones whilst walking. Although we are a no mobile phone school, and pupils wouldn’t be walking with phones on a school day, this is an important message about ensuring safety first at all times.
