Oakleigh School took part in Road Safety Week between 19th and 23rd November as part of our school travel plan.

Throughout the week classes ran lessons around road safety and took part in actives around the school. Some classes went out into the local community and put into practice the road safety skills they had learnt.

On Wednesday our early year’s children took part in Beep Beep Day with the focus on traffic lights and crossing the road. We turned the corridors of the school into pretend roads with traffic lights and even a zebra crossing.
The staff and children all dressed up in bright colours for our Be Bright Be Seen Day on the Friday. In the morning there were lots of exciting actives around the school for the children to take part in.

Two of our governors, the Rev Shaun Saunders and Jackie Silverman, joined us for a special sensory story assembly in the afternoon focusing on how important it is to ware bright colours when out and about in the dark.
Road Safety Week was a great success and the children and staff had lots of fun while learning how to be safe when crossing the road.
