Our recently appointment Junior Travel Ambassadors at both the Royal Arsenal and Thamesmead campus did a traffic survey on the roads outside school to highlight any road safety issues. They saw lots of safe road-crossing and families walking/scooting to school, but they also saw many cars pulling up on the yellow zig-zag lines making it unsafe for some children crossing the road.
Our Junior Travel Ambassadors will be working hard to encourage more families to walk to school and prevent unsafe congestion!
Please help us by parking in a safe place or walking to school.
Here’s some comments from our Junior Travel Ambassadors:
“I want people to do good hand-holding, watch traffic lights,
walk to school, scoot, cycle, take a car to a place near school walk the rest of the way, walk in groups and lastly, take the bus.” – J
“We want to encourage people if they live far then you can drive and park your car and walk the rest of the way to school.” – V
“I wanted to be a JTA because I want to change the way people in our school use transport in their daily lives. Some people are making pollution in our local area, which is causing people to have asthma and other sickness, and I want to stop that.” – J
“I want to be JTA because I want to make the environment better and I want to stop accidents and I want to help people while crossing the road!” – D
“It is very important to cross the road with care make sure you are safe, don’t just run across the road you can get hit by a car.” – E
