Road Safety Week 20 to 26 November

Coordinated by charity Brake, the week is a great opportunity to engage children of all ages with road safety by using free resources (available from September), including assembly and workshop slides, guidance sheets, activity sheets, posters and digital content such as videos and games. This year’s theme of Speed Down Save Lives aims to raise awareness about the dangers of driving too fast, especially around schools, homes and shops, and focus on the positives of keeping your Speed Down so children can walk and cycle safely.
