Road safety week: 18 - 24 November 2019
28 Oct 2019
Road Safety Week (RSW) is the UK's biggest road safety event, organised by 'Brake', a road safety charity.
The week is a great opportunity for schools to engage children and young people in road safety, to help them understand how they can keep themselves and others safe, and raise awareness in the school community.

A key part of Ealing Council's Transport Strategy is to improve road safety that supports the Mayor of London's 'Vision Zero' project. This aims to eliminate deaths and serious injuries from London’s streets by 2041. By encouraging families and staff to shift to 'Active Travel' getting to and from schools, and teaching good road safety skills, together we can help to make streets safer for everyone.
Promoting road safety will help schools towards STARS accreditation in 2020, achieving 2 stories on the system, one for supporting and the other for taking part. We have put together a guide which contains a number of easily achievable and effective STARS activities that your school can do.
