How you can stay safer

Road Safety Week
On Tuesday 20th November, two police officers came into school to talk to the children about Road Safety. They learnt about where to sit in the car in order to keep themselves safe. They enjoyed the 'Car Seat' limbo which helped the children understand whether they needed to still use a car seat when travelling. Children that needed a car seat received a red sticker and children that didn't need a car seat received a green sticker. So we now all know how to stay safe - Thank you Kerry-Ann and Andrea.
