What we offer for children in schools

Pedestrian Training

Currently offered to Year 5 pupils but will also be offered to reception age pupils and their parents from 2016.

Speed sessions/speed watch

Currently offered to Year 5/6 pupils at selected schools. Pupils work with road safety staff and the police to look at the speed of drivers near their school. The pupils then have the opportunity to talk to speeding drivers about the dangers and consequences of their speeding.

Crucial Crew

Organised by Community Safety Partnerships for Year 6 pupils in eight districts across Essex.
