Pedestrian Safety, Year 7, Key Stage 3

back to all products


As young people start to use the roads independently, “Streetwise”, gives them the opportunity to explore risk, responsibility and consequences as a pedestrian. This enables them to make informed decisions, manage their personal safety and understand how their behaviour affects those around them.

Learning Objectives

  • Raise awareness of the risks when using the road system as a pedestrian, especially when on ‘automatic pilot’ travelling a route they often take e.g. to school.
  • Identify and challenge distractions to pedestrian safety such as phones, mp3 players and messing around with friends
  • Create real life strategies to overcome peer pressure / peer influence around poor road safety.
  • Encourage the use of school crossing patrols and pedestrian crossings - to ask for help when it’s needed.
  • Increase the student’s knowledge of how to remain safe when using the roads and have the confidence to continue using this information.
