The aim of road safety education is for educators to work with children and their families to develop skills, behaviours and attitudes that assists children to be safer on our roads as passengers, pedestrians and users of bicycles and other wheeled toys.

Road safety education (RSE) requires intentional (thoughtful, purposeful, and deliberate) planning that articulates the way educators support children to acquire the skills to be effective road users into the future.

Road safety education must be evidence based and match the child’s stage of development and level of independence as a road user. As children develop these skills, they become safe and active participants in their communities, now and into the future.

The session will include:

  • the statistics of child road trauma
  • why children are at particular risk
