School Streets Audit - real world road safety learning around school

School Streets Audit - real world road safety learning around school

This lesson involves discussion in the classroom, followed by walks following routes in the immediate school area, then further discussion in the classroom. The lesson is suitable for all classes, from Nursery to Primary 7, with discussions modified according to the year taught. The school streets audit could be carried out by one class or year group. Alternatively, each class within the school could take a route from the school to involve the whole school in conducting an audit. There are a number of objectives relevant to carrying out the School Streets Audit: • To learn about road safety in a real-world context • To contribute evidence to a School Travel Plan • To identify areas where safety could be improved by infrastructure (speed bumps, double yellow lines, crossings, etc) in order to request such improvements from the Local Authority.

A week long homework project looking at pupil's means of travel to and from school.

‘To School, and Back Again’ is a one week homework project, suitable for year, Nursery to Primary 7.

Below are some of the reasons for using the ‘To School and Back Again’ homework project: • As a whole school research project to contribute to a School Travel Plan. • As a way to measure change when the school is working on sustainable journeys or promoting active travel. ‘To School, and Back Again’ can be run before and after a programme of change and the difference in responses measured. • To practise numeracy skills in completing tables and to provide data for further learning on presenting data. • As part of cross curricular studies on topics such as journeys, transport or health and physical activity.

Instructions, curriculum links and worksheet to carry out a hands up survey of school travel

Instructions, curriculum links and worksheet to carry out a hands up survey of school travel

A hands up survey for looking at how pupils travel to school and how they would like to travel to school. This is a good project for a small group of pupils, such as a pupil council, eco-schools group or road safety group to conduct. This group could also analyse and present the results. Alternatively, one class might carry out the survey as part of a transport or community project. The survey can also provide useful evidence in writing a School Travel Plan. The survey is an excellent numeracy project involving collecting and presenting data.
