Helping boys stay safe on the roads

Year 7 boys took part in a specially arranged workshop designed to keep pupils safe on the roads by highlighting the dangers of being distracted by music, mobile phones or friends.

A theatre group, The Riot Act, performed a play called Deadly Distraction. This was followed by an interactive session in which the pupils were encouraged to reflect on the key road safety messages they had heard.

Assistant Head Michael Taylor said: “We seek to promote safe, responsible and positive behaviour amongst pupils on their journeys to School and home again.

""“It was a great performance, with important messages about road safety, which will help the boys keep themselves safe on dark winter evenings.”

The workshop was arranged in association with the Borough of Barnet.

Form tutors are following up the themes covered with the boys in their Personal Development Time (PDT) sessions.
