Junior Road Safety Officer


  • JRSOs are pupils from year 4 and above, who promote road safety within the school community.
  • Simple to run, we just need a named adult contact.
  • Resources provided free of charge by the road safety team.

This is a good approach because…

Peer educators can communicate and understand in a way that the best-intentioned adults can't, and can serve as role models for change. Peer educators can help raise awareness, provide accurate information, and help their classmates develop skills to change behaviour." – UNICEF
