Charter puts safety first

ROAD SAFETY: A new resource to help improve road safety education is being launched in primary schools across Edinburgh, the Lothians and Scottish Borders.

The Travel Safe Charter provides advice and guidance on a range of policies, practises and procedures, while encouraging and rewarding individual efforts.

It will fit within the existing Curriculum for Excellence framework. Schools will submit evidence demonstrating they have achieved the goals set within the Travel Charter framework and will be acknowledged through the award of a charter certificate.
