Safety Officers

Junior Safety Officers

Hello and welcome to our Junior Safety Officers webpage. We are Ruby and Toby

These pages will evolve throughout the year and will include messages about personal safety and keeping safe when you are out and about during the year.

We will discuss safety gear; helmets and seatbelts and why they are important. We will talk to you all about community safety, looking after the environment, keeping your property safe and being a Good Citizen.



Join us for our Easter Egg Hunt. Download the form and use the clue to collect letters. These letters wil spell out an important safety message.

Our focus this month was The Green Cross Code and Stranger Danger.

Our first March focus was The GREEN CROSS CODE Click on the link below to watch our Green Cross Code video.  Click here for video  Filmed by students for students.

Stop: First find a safe place to cross.

Look: It’s important that you can see all around you clearly in all directions. If you can’t see traffic then the traffic can’t see you. Look all around you for traffic. LOOK right, then left and then to your right again before you cross.

Listen: You can usually hear traffic. Listen carefully for traffic that you can’t see. Beware of electric cars and other vehicles that don’t make a sound such as scoots and bicycles.

Think: You have done this at every stage. When it is safe and there is no traffic, walk straight across the road. Keep looking and listening while you cross the road.NEVER run across the road because you might fall over and you might not get up in time.

Look and keep looking while you cross the road.

Our second focus was Stranger Danger. A stranger is someone you don’t know; somebody you have only just met or someone you don’t know that well. Most strangers won’t cause any harm but you always need to be careful. They are not always scary looking. They may try to be nice to you at first. Never be afraid to say no to a stranger and always tell an adult you trust like your parents if this happens.

Here are some tips on what to do to keep safe.

  • When you are at home, don’t answer the door. That’s your parent’s job. Keep the doors locked.
  • When you are playing outside. Play where you can be seen by other people or for our younger viewer the person you are with. Never go towards a car even if the people call you over.
  • When using a computer don’t talk to strangers online, they may not be who they say they are and don’t give anyone any details about yourself including your name, age, address or where you go to school.
  • If you are further from home and a stranger asks you to go with them say or shout very loudly NO. Say things like Help, I don’t know you or you’re not my Mum or Dad.
  • Never accept a gift from a stranger, never go with them. They may say they have a puppy or something is in their car or they are lost or have lost something and want you to help. As before say or shout very loudly ‘NO’. Say things like ‘Help, I don’t know you or you’re not my mum or dad.’
  • When using your phone, don’t trust what strangers tell you on the phone, never give out you name, age, address or where you go to school. Put the phone down and tell someone you trust.


Our focus this month is Parking Outside School and Internet Safety (S.M.A.R.T)

Our first focus this month is Parking Outside School.

Have a think about how you get to and from School?

  • Never park or drop someone off on the yellow zig zags
  • Never park on double yellow lines
  • Remember you could walk, park and walk, scoot or cycle to school.

Our second focus was Internet Safety and how to be S.M.A.R.T online.

S for Safe: Keep personal details away from strangers.

M for Meet: Don’t meet people that you know online unless you’re with a trusted adult.

A for Accept: Don’t click any links that you’re unsure about. Ask a trusted adult.

R for Reliable: Don’t believe everything you see and hear online. Some people may say or write things that aren’t true. Check information before you believe it.

T for Tell someone: If you are unsure or worried about something online ask an adult you trust. If you get nasty messages or anything that makes you feel uncomfortable tell an adult. Never reply to the messages even if they say you have to. Speak to an adult or call Childline.



Our focus this month is Seat Belts & Car Seats and Property Markings.

Our first focus this month is Seat Belts & Car Seats. It’s actually the law that you must use a car seat until you are 12 years old or smaller than 135cms tall.

Using a car seat is safer for children as it puts us and our body in the right position for the seat belt to work. It should sit over your shoulder and the lap part should sit on your hips. If you are over this age or taller than 135cm then you must wear a seat belt. Your parents or guardians can be fined up to £500 if you don’t use a car seat and using a car seat or a seat belt will protect you if you are in a car crash.

Did you know that wearing a seat belt saves over 2000 lives a year?

Our second topic is Property Marking. Did you know that sometimes if you lose your property or if its stolen there may be a way to get it back? One way is to mark your items by using an ultraviolet pen. This is invisible and semi-permanent ink. When the police shine a special light on it they will see the invisible ink.


Our focus this month is Safety Helmets and Safety Gear and Personal and Community Safety

If you watched any of the Olympics or the Paralympics, you might have seen all the cyclists or skateboarders wearing helmets because they know what might happen if they don't. Helmets protect your head from hurting if you fall off your bike. This is one of the many things that protect you from badly hurting yourself. Maybe you could ask for for some for Christmas

Our other December Focus is Personal and Community Safety. In case of emergency, add ICE as a contact on your phone as a contact with the phone number of your parent or guardian.

Did you see our Reverse Advent Calendar on Twitter. We added a baubal on each school day. Each day had an important safety message.

We would like to wish you all a Happy, Safe Christmas.


Our focus for this month was Safer Crossing Places and Anti-Bullying

There are 8 types of safe crossing places; Pelican, Puffin, Toucan, Pegasus, Zebra, Traffic Islands, Bridges and School Crossing (Lolly-Pop Lady/man.)

These are usually on roads that are busier or harder to cross. But busier roads aren't always the most dangerous, some quieter roads are dangerous too. And don't forget, electric cars are more used now, so wait, look and listen.

In November we also had Anti-Bullying week to talk about bullying and how to stop it. We hosted an odd socks day to show that we are all different and bullying is not OK, and it can happen anytime, anywhere to anyone. It can be repetitive and last for a long time, it makes people sad, lonely, and left out. We held an Odd Socks Colouring competition. Well done to our competition winners from Juniors, Infants and Nursery.

We also had Road Safety Week in November and we raised £206 for the BRAKE Charity. Well done to everyone who took part in our sponsored walk or bike ride.


Our focus for this month is Be Bright, Be Seen and Halloween and Bonfire Night Safety

Let’s look at Be Bright Be Seen. What does this mean? Some of you will know that the clock go back one hour soon this means it will get darker earlier. This means it can be hard to be seen especially by drivers. How can we make sure we are seen? We could wear bright colours or have bright colours on our clothes and bags. This could be fluorescent and reflective materials which can be seen easily in the day or night. You could have bright or reflective keyrings, carry a torch or use the torch on your phone if you have one. And remember to use the lights on your bike when you are out riding.

Our second focus is Halloween and Bonfire Night Safety. These two exciting nights are nearly here but we need to remember to stay safe. Most of us won’t be going out Trick or Treating but we may have a bonfire in our garden with some fireworks. Remember to stand well back from the fire, it will get very hot and sparks can jump off it. Always remember to wear gloves if you use a sparkler or you could put it in a carrot. Remember never to pick up a sparkler it can reach 2000 degrees Celsius. That’s 20 times hotter than boiling water. Never go back to a lit firework.

We hope you enjoyed our competition. Congratulations to our first place winners; Will in Nursery for a fantastic firework picture, Rory in Reception for your brightly coloured picture and Jamie in year six for your poem.  

We hope you all enjoyed our Bright Day, raising awareness of why we should wear bright clothes when we go out at this time of year.


Our focus for this month is Clean Air.

This month’s topic is all about Clean Air and there are two ways that you can help. The first is this; if you come to school in a car please ask the person who brings you and collects you all about Engine Idling. This is when a car is stopped for over a minute but the engine is still running. It produces Carbon Emissions which are bad for us and the environment, so please ask them to turn the engine off. This will help improve the air quality around our school, making it safer and healthier for everyone. Why not try and walk, scoot or cycle to school, even if it’s just part of the way. This will give you some exercise and make you ready to work.

There are a number of reasons why you should do this.

First is the environment. When an engine is running it blows carbon dioxide into the air. This is the main greenhouse gas responsible for climate change.

Second is health. Idling makes air quality worse. Young people like us are more likely to become ill because are lungs are still developing.

Third is money. Idling wastes fuel that you have to pay for. It burns a hole in your pocket.

Fourth is Safety. With engines idling it creates lots noise which makes it harder for children to hear cars that are moving.

So what can you do? Don’t travel by car unless you have to.

Ask your parents to switch off their engine if they are waiting longer than a minute.

Share this information with your family and friends.
