Woodlands JRSO (Junior Road Safety Officers) raise awareness of road safety for children, parents and neighbours in our area. JRSO’s design competitions for our pupils to participate in, as well as this we hold assemblies to talk to the whole school about staying safe especially now darker nights are drawing in and we also organise events such as “Be Bright, Be Seen”, Walk to school week etc.

As members of the Telford Travel Schools Network, Telford and Wrekin Council, the Junior Road Safety Officers have been focusing on the Modeshift Award. Modeshift STARS is a national schools awards scheme that has been established to recognise schools that have demonstrated excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable transport.  Woodlands pupils, staff, parents/carers and the local community are part of the Modeshift STARS.

Woodlands Primary have achieved both Bronze and Silver Awards from the Modeshift STARS.  Robin, Telford Travel Advisor, joined us for the assembly to present the Modeshift STARS GOLD award to the whole school.  We are delighted to achieve this award and thankful to everyone for their hardwork in helping Woodlands children to be safe on our roads.
