Child Pedestrian Training

Schools Go Smarter’s Child Pedestrian Training is an incredibly popular project with pupils and teachers, which gives pupils in Years 3 and 4 the confidence to walk along the road, and helps pupils learn how to make judgements and decisions about road safety. 

The project has increased in popularity within Tyne and Wear over the past five years; and in 2015-16, Northumberland has also begun to offer this project to schools, boosting the overall number of pupils benefitting from the project to over 4,000 in the past academic year. The dedicated project trainers work with Year 3 or Year 4 pupils in hour-long sessions, over five or six weeks.

To find out how your school can get involved, contact our Pedestrian Training Coordinator, Zoe Jones at email Zoe.Jones@Gateshead.Gov.Uk or telephone 0191 433 3085.
