Whole school approach to the safety of students as road users
Schools want their students to be safe road users now and into the future, and take a whole school approach towards this through-
1. teaching and learning of curriculum: road safety is a mandatory part of K-10 PDHPE syllabuses and the Stage 6 Life Ready course. Teachers localise teaching and learning activities to reflect the environmental conditions in which students travel/live.
2. informing school community on how they expect parents/carers to act onsite and in the school zone traffic environment. This may be via social media, school newsletters, school website, school brochures or kindergarten/high school orientation days.
3. liaising internally and with external agencies to get support in addressing road safety concerns onsite and in the school zone. Schools inform students and the school community about using current traffic infrastructure to ensure students are kept as safe as practically possible.
