Community Safety News


As children return to school in September, the Neighbourhood Police Teams top tips for ensuring children and parents are ready for the journey ahead and can stay as safe as possible.
 
Families are being advised to take to two wheels or travel on foot if they can and plan out journeys to allow extra time as an increase in traffic is expected.
Community Officers have invited families to “rethink how they travel” encouraging all to walk and cycle where possible, especially for families that live within a mile of their school.
 
Make sure you’ve checked out our top tips before setting off on the journey to school. These include:
 
Map it out
If you’re travelling to a new school, trying a different route or getting to school on foot or bike, there’s help available to plan and prepare for your journey.

Allow extra time
There will be more traffic on the road so when you plan your route, allow extra time to get there (including for any arrangements that specific schools might have in place).
You could test out your route to make sure you’re prepared.
 
Plan for the end of the journey too
If necessary to drive, park safely and where possible consider parking further away and walking the last five minutes of the journey. This will help reduce congestion and pollution around the school gates and allow families to maintain social distancing.
 
Gear up and be prepared
For those taking the journey on two wheels, bikes need to have had all of the relevant safety checks either at home or can be taken to a cycle hub. Children need to remember a helmet!
For families where this might be the first time that children are getting back in the car, children need to have the correct car seat.
 
Stay alert on the road
Help children to stay alert and remind them of the road safety messages when using the road. Using a mobile phone or other distractions such as listening to music should be avoided to ensure that they can look, listen and be as safe as possible on the journey to school. 

Please enjoy the New School Year, stay safe and we wish you all the best in their studies
