What is a JRSO?
They promote road safety and sustainable transport to their fellow pupils and have fun whilst they are doing it!
What do they do?
They read monthly bulletins, give talks in assemblies, run competitions, have a Noticeboard to display posters and information and support the schools STP working group. They have been given a ‘Kids Pack’ of information and ideas to help them in their role.
There is a JRSO website that has lots of ideas and links to other useful websites and information
There is an annual training event for JRSOs, giving them the opportunity to find out more about their role, take part in activities and meet other JRSOs from around the County.
What are the benefits of JRSO?
It is an excellent way to engage with pupils and encourage them to be involved in their school and the local community. It enables them to participate in the development and maintenance of an active and successful school travel plan.
