Child pedestrian training

Wirral Council works with local schools to educate children and young people about road safety. Some of the ways we do this include:

Road side training for year 1 pupils (aged 5 - 6) targeted at high risk areas and groups.

Year 6: Arrive Alive – focuses on the transition from primary to secondary school, including in-car safety, planning safe routes to school, pedestrian safety, travelling by bus and cycle safety.

Changing schools

The move from primary to secondary school can be a daunting experience for many children. We’ve prepared a leaflet with advice and tips on walking, cycling, using public transport and travelling by car.

Year 7: Walk Wise - focuses on a road traffic collision and how it might have been prevented.

Year 10: Belt Up –focuses on pedestrian safety and in-car safety.

We also have a number of resources available for schools including speed guns which can be used as part of an interactive road safety session in your schools. There are also leaflets and banners raising awareness of the problems of parking around schools.
