Neath Port Talbot's Road Safety Unit is committed to fulfilling
its responsibility of providing an ongoing Education, Training and
Publicity programme for all. In order to meet these
responsibilities, one of the main roles of the unit from a schools
perspective, is to actively support Road Safety Education in
pre-primary, primary and secondary schools, through the provision
of educational resources, help in lesson planning as well as
delivery of education on request.
Road awareness needs to be developed from an early age and
continued throughout life. Road user education is a relevant and
vital aspect of Personal Health and Social Education, helping
pupils to take responsibility for their own safety and to consider
the needs of others. Road Safety Education can contribute to the
general educational goals of the whole curriculum by promoting
moral, cultural, mental and physical development.
- Provide opportunities for all pupils to learn and to
- Prepare all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and
experiences of life.
