Road Safety

It is vital that everyone has good road safety sense at Green Lane Primary and Nursery School. The key messages to all Green Lane children are as follows:

1. First find the safest place to cross the road

Look out for safe crossing spots eg zebra, pelican or toucan crossings as well as islands, subways or crossings controlled by a traffic warden.

Aim to cross at a spot where they can see clearly in all directions and where they can be seen, so not between parked cars.

2. When crossing the road stop just before you get to the kerb

Do not stand too close to the edge of the kerb and take your time looking around for traffic.

3. Look all around for traffic and listen

4. If traffic is coming, let it pass

It's always better to take your time and wait for all traffic to pass.

5. When it is safe, go straight across the road - but do not run

Keep looking and listening as you cross the road

Who to contact if you are worried?

There may be times when you feel worried, anxious or sad about certain events in your life.

Sometimes people can feel sad but they may not know why. Usually, if people feel sad, there is a reason. The good news is that at Green Lane, everyone is here to help you feel happier. You can talk to people at home, your parents, grandparents, friends or relatives. You can discuss things with your friends. If you are worried, you can simply talk to a teacher or a teaching assistant in your class. If you are outside you can talk to the staff on duty. Sometimes people like to talk to the staff in the office.

At lunchtime, there are many lunchtime supervisors on duty who will be able to help you.
