JRSO Update — February 2023

Our JRSO team (Junior Road Safety Officers), consist of six primary 6 pupils who share the same vision, to raise road safety awareness in our school and local community.

This year, our JRSO team has been playing a crucial role in helping our pupils, parents and staff to stay safe around roads and vehicles. 

What we have accomplished so far:

  • JRSO team were selected through an application process
  • Handbooks and badges were distributed to our new team members
  • Application was made to Road Safety Scotland to provide our primary 1’s with the home learning resource ‘Ziggy’s Little Books For Home.’
  • JRSO team prepared a presentation on Road Safety In The Dark, they carried out a 5 minute presentation educating pupils about road safety in the dark
  • Launched a competition to design a ‘Stay Bright’ logo
  • Road Safety Awareness Week – our JRSOs have made fliers for parents/carers regarding parking around school grounds. 
  • Patrolled outside school grounds to raise awareness of Road Safety Week
