Road Safety Education

Buzz delivers a number of workshops for schools, academies and colleges. These popular sessions are available in a day-long programme or however your timetable is organised.

Key Stage 3 - "Good News, Bad News

This workshop looks at 11-14 year olds as a high risk pedestrian group and the factors involved in their accidents.

The session also looks at seat belt use in cars and ends with "We're Miles Ahead!", a nail-biting feedback game.

"I am always slightly nervous when guest speakers come into assembly, as you're never sure how good they are going to be.

I needn't have worried about Keith. From the moment the students walked into the room he had their attention, and they were transfixed throughout the entire talk. He made it relevant to them, and used examples of accidents and danger spots that they would recognise. His manner with the students was excellent and they were engaged throughout.

The feedback from the students afterwards was first class and they certainly left the room far more aware of the potential dangers of the road than they had been before."

Keystage 4/5 - "Driving With Grace"

Sadly, young, male drivers, feature as a high risk group in casualty statistics. Statistics suggest that young, male drivers are the biggest killers of young women in the UK.

"Driving With Grace" centres around a recently produced documentary, by the Safer Roads Foundation, about a road traffic collision in 2009. The incident resulted in the death of 14 year old Eleanor Grace McGrath. Seventeen other young people were injured, eight seriously.

After the viewing, issues arising from the film are discussed including speed and consequences v criminality.
