Junior Road Safety Officers
Thank you to everyone who took part in Road Safety Week last week, we hope you enjoyed all of the activities and discussed ways to be safe, however you travel.
Another huge thank you to everyone who took part in our 5 mile walk to raise money for the charity Brake, who support victims of road traffic incidents - thank you for braving the cold weather to walk and raise awareness of road safety!
We have a new banner on the fence just before you reach Reception, we hope you’ve spotted it! Another opportunity to discuss road travel safety as you arrive at and leave school!
Our recent competition for Reception children to ‘Design a Bike’ was amazing! Jeremy and Steven were so impressed with all of your designs! Steven and Jeremy announced the winners in their class assemblies this week, well done to those two children! We’ve also sent off the Kent Safer Road User’s competition entries so we’ll update you if any River Mill children are winners!
Now, if you live in Kent please visit the website below to have your say on the Kent Walking and Cycling Infrastructure Plan. A huge development for sustainable travel across Kent is fantastic news! “We are carrying out this consultation to gather your views on the proposed cycling routes and walking and wheeling zones to enable residents and visitors to make more journeys on foot or by cycle. Your feedback, local knowledge and insights will be invaluable in understanding the challenges and opportunities for active travel improvements across Kent. The government’s ambition is to make walking, wheeling and cycling the natural choices, both for shorter and longer journeys. Transforming local areas in ways that support active travel will reduce congestion, improve air quality, improve physical and mental health and support local economies.”
Finally, year 3 and 4 will have a visit from the Kent Road Safety team on Monday 4th December to deliver a lesson on Road Safety. We look forward to welcoming them! Thank you for your support.
