Road Safety Interview with Mrs Coombs

The Road Safety Team interviewing members of staff about keeping fit.

Active Winter Breakfast Our last road safety event of the year, Active Winter Breakfast, was a huge success! Thank you to Cathie Friar from East Riding Yorkshire Council School Travel Action Plan Team and David Ryley and Shannon from Tesco, for their continued support and donations with our monthly events. The Junior Travel Ambassadors helped serve over 250 porridge pots and cups of hot chocolate raising £31.72 in donations. Have a happy and safe Christmas time from St. Mary's Road Safety Team.

On Monday we began our Be Bright Week with colourful hats, scarves, gloves, socks, tights and hair accessories. Lots of different activities were taking place in classes this week to promote Be Seen Be Safe. Some classes took part in solving maths problems to colour in bright clothing, others looked at school crossing patrol worksheets. We had a hands up survey to find out how we all travel to school and Junior Travel Ambassadors gave out a flashing arm band to all Foundation Stage pupils. The main event was the Junior Travel Ambassadors worship. The new team presented a brilliant reminder on what happens if you cannot be seen by motorists. Miss Hodgson was chosen to be dressed as a... good example of what we should all be wearing in the darker months for safety!

We are thrilled that a pupil from our school has been chosen as the winner of the national ‘Recognition Express Road Safety Week’ competition! She is one of 12 winners who has been selected from around the UK. Her poster design has been made into a full-size banner and is now displayed outside the school.
She also received a very special trophy and drawstring bags for every child at St Mary’s.
Well done!



Road Safety Week 2018

Be Bike Smart


During Road Safety Week each class was asked to fill in the Bike Smart poster with good safety messages for cyclists. Wearing a helmet was a top choice, along with checking your lights and brakes work!


After a special visit from John Rowland at Safer Roads Humber, everyone seemed to like the idea of wearing a helmet to protect their head! This was enforced with a demonstration by John with eggs in helmets.


Pupils got the chance to watch CCTV footage of accidents caused whilst using a mobile phone ..and not paying attention! This was very humorous in places ...although it carried a strong message. John was very impressed by our Junior Travel Ambassadors and the fact that we have a great Road Safety board
