Junior Road Safety Officers

Our JRSOs have been checking to see that cars park safely at pick up time..

Pavements shouldn't be blocked by cars!
The village car park is a safe place to park!

The school have had a Junior Road Safety Officer team since 2008. They take part in Suffolk County Council Highways Agency 'Junior Road Safety Scheme. Last year our four JRSOs worked tirelessly to make Holbrook and its pupils safe whilst out and about. Each year we cover basic road awareness and safety including an autumn/winter brightness campaign. We always promote walking, cycling and scooting. Every year we have focused events such as a whole school sponsored walk around Alton Water, walk to school weeks and the Big Pedal weeks. We continue with our campaign to improve parking around the school. The JRSOs conduct regular parking patrols, giving out smiley faces to considerately parked cars. Their registration is then entered in a prize drawer. The JRSOs promoted an anti-idling initiative aimed at people switching off their engines when waiting to collect pupils. (This is to ensure a cleaner, healthier environment for all.) The JRSOs sent a winning flyer home to all parents and put up posters around the village. They asked the local secondary school to support their initiative and were interviewed on local BBC Suffolk radio.
