On Friday 12th May it was 'Road Safety Day' at Bare Trees Primary School. On this day pupils took part in activities throughout the day to improve their knowledge and understanding of road safety. In the afternoon we invited a road safety officer to come into school to speak to pupils and also invited parents to join us. The Eco Council asked pupils to design a banner which will be displayed outside of our school to encourage parents to park responsibly and drive slowly to ensure everyone is safe. Pupils were invited on this day to wear non-uniform with a contribution of 50p towards the cost of making the road safety banner. The theme was 'Be safe, be seen' with pupils encouraged to wear bright coloured clothing.
