Junior Safety Officers
Junior Safety Officers 2022-23:
Road safety officers are officially known as JSOs (Junior Safety Officers) and work with CWAC to promote road, community and personal safety messages to their fellow pupils and the wider community. Teachers appoint two Year 6 children to fulfil this role. As part of the scheme, the officers are tasked with promoting positive messages about personal safety, road safety, fire safety and community safety, as well as organising competitions and setting up notice boards.
The first safety notice was in October 2021 was centred on ‘Be Bright Be Seen’ which focused on wearing bright clothes throughout autumn and winter, for the darker nights and shorter days. Our JSOs ran a competition for Bonfire Safety. Prizes are funded by CWAC which our JSOs must order in advance.
Other messages over the school year will include the Green Cross Code and internet safety.
