Safe travel

Parents and carers are responsible for deciding the safest way for their child to get to and from school.

All types of travel require planning, safe practices and observing road rules and guidelines. Young children, in particular, require active supervision by an adult whenever they are in a traffic environment.

Students learn about road safety as part of PDHPE from Kindergarten to Year 10. They continue to learn about it in Years 11 and 12 as part of the Life Ready course.

Parents and carers help schools to support and reinforce what their children learn about by highlighting the importance of safe travel.

Champs of getting to school safely

Help keep all children safe when travelling to and from school, be a champ of #Getting to School Safely.

Schools should regularly remind parents and carers about being a safe road user and provide Information for travelling independently to students about their responsibilities when old enough to travel alone.
