Walking training for schools

Teaching road and pedestrian safety at your school

Our Walking Training Programme is aimed at children ages 7 to 8 years old (Year 3).

It is delivered by our Safer Travel and Cycle Training teams and taught through a combination of classroom and practical roadside sessions.

Topics include:

  • The Green Cross Code, stop, look, listen and think
  • Road signs and pedestrian crossings including School Crossing Patrol, puffin, pelican, zebra crossings and islands
  • Recognising safer places to cross
  • Recognising where it is unsafe to cross such as driveways, junctions and bends
  • How to cross between parked cars including knowing what to look and listen for when a car is about to move
