Junior Road Safety Officer Scheme

1 October 2006

A road safety scheme for 9-11 year olds in London

Designed for 9 -11 year olds, the JRSO scheme recruits one or two children in each participating school to act as road safety champions and lead on promoting road safety issues amongst their peers, through initiatives such as games, competitions and special assemblies. It aims to give the children a good grounding in road safety education as they prepare to make the transition to secondary school – the point at which many children begin to travel independently for the first time.

The scheme involves schools ‘recruiting’ one to two Years 5-6 pupils (aged 9-11) to take a lead on promoting road safety issues in their school communities in interesting and creative ways. The appointed children teach their peers about road safety through games, competitions, plays, etc. They are given a colourful pack of resources to help them, along with a special badge, bag and pencil case. There is also a child-friendly website supporting the scheme – www.tfl.gov.uk/juniorroadsafety and a school guide pack for the school staff member who supports the children during their year as a JRSO
