  • THINK! Education – Includes a wealth of road safety information and resources for pupils, teachers and parents. “THINK! provides road safety information for road users.

Road Safety Professionals
Out-of-School Groups

  • The Department for Transport presents Tales of the Road , which is a set of animated poems aimed at 6-11 year olds; however, the road safety messages it presents are relevant to children of all ages. Use this toolkit to help children learn how to find safe places to cross the road.

“Research found that children in this age range need to understand the reasons for always using good road safety behaviour. The campaign therefore uses animated characters that are vulnerable to the real consequences of not following good road use. The key message is ‘you need to use good road safety behaviour or you could come to real harm’. The campaign also demonstrates the correct road safety behaviours.”(Department of Transport)
