Walk Wise

Our Walk Wise programme has been developed to allow primary school children in Years 1 and 2 to become confident and competent pedestrians with an understanding and awareness of safer road use, consideration for other pavement users and the golden rules – stop, look, listen and think.

Our Walk Wise Pedestrian Skills Programme is 100% practical based, guiding children through a wide range of scenarios and everyday situations in safe, risk-assessed environments. 

Each child participating in our Walk Wise programme will complete 2 hours of practical training, typically spread across 4 weeks and is designed to give children the skills and confidence to walk short distances more safely.
