New training Resources available from THINK!

24 November 2017

The UK government has launching a new series of THINK! Road safety resources for schools, families and others responsible for road safety education.  The free online resources feature lesson plans, films and even a song about getting to school safely to make children aware of potential dangers. These are available on the THINK! resource centre - a one stop source of  road safety education materials.

There are 25 lesson packs that will help you teach a range of road safety topics to children and teenagers of all ages.

The lesson packs are colour coded by key stage and age range, from early years to key stage 4.

Each lesson pack contains a lesson plan, links to road safety teaching resources, and activities; everything you need to plan and deliver effective road safety education.

These resources are not limited to classroom use and we hope that they will be used by anyone with responsibility for educating children and teenagers on road safety, including road safety officers, police and fire officers, out of school leaders, and parents.

If you’re a pupil, you could help your friends and classmates stay safe on the road by using our information and activities in an assembly, tutor time or at a youth group.
