What is the Junior Road Safety Officer (JRSO) Scheme?
The scheme will run over the academic year with two pupils working as JRSO's, one from Year 5 and one from Year 6, ideally either one or both will be a member of the school council. The aim being that they will raise awareness of road safety to pupils, parents, teachers and the local community through the promotion of different road safety themes. You can also include your own initiatives too. The JRSO's will also provide a vital link between the road safety team and school. An adult helper will also need to be nominated to assist the JRSO's.
