Road safety in high schools and colleges

As children become increasingly independent we reinforce road safety messages with workshops to pupils in years 7 and 8, often during drop-down or cross curricular days. We often share the day with other agencies delivering related PSHE topics. To book a visit please email

We work closely with other agencies to reinforce important road safety messages at critical points in young people's lives. West Mercia Police Safer Roads Partnership (SRP) deliver Green Light to 16-18 year old pupils in sixth forms and colleges. Jointly we attend student events at Herefordshire and Ludlow College, Hereford Art College and Hereford Sixth Form College. To book Green Light please contact West Mercia Safer Roads Partnership.

Dying 2 Drive, part of Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service road safety education programme, is a free annual event offered to Year 11 pupils in Herefordshire high schools. A realistic collision scene followed by workshops involving the road safety team, highlight the contributing factors to fatal or serious injury accidents, seatbelts, speed, distractions and impairment. A personal account describing the devastating ripple effect on family, friends and beyond when a young person is involved in a fatal road traffic collision gives a reflective end to each session.
