Junior Road Safety Officers
What is a JRSO?
JRSO stands for Junior Road Safety Officer.
The job of a JRSO
JRSOs are a very important part of the school as they help raise road safety awareness and promote road safety issues to everyone in the school and the wider community. Here are just some of the activities JRSOs can get involved in:
Talk at assemblies and to classes on road safety topics
Run competitions in the school, get prizes for the winners and hand out merit certificates
Employ next year’s JRSOs by displaying the advert, handing out application forms and sitting on the interview panel
Get involved in organising safe and active travel activities.
The JROS’s this year have met with governors to discuss a new crossing from the KS1 & KS2 buildings. Their plans are currently with Hampshire County council awaiting approval!
Why do the children want to be JRSO’s?
Poppy 'I like being a JRSO because we help people stay safe and make decisions about things. The training day was so fun, because we got to design a T-Shirt and find out about pollution'.
Jake 'I like being a JRSO because we got to make decisions about the new path. And write letters to the governors about the road signs that we want'.
Charlotte 'Being a JRSO is fun because you get to make important decisions and run assemblies'.
Year 4 applications will be open from 18th June 2018
