Good Ideas

Have a look through some great UN Decade of Action ideas that other schools have come up with. Maybe you could use some of them!

If you have any good work or great ideas ask your JRSO to upload them to the site, it might get featured in the Spotlight On area or on the Show & Tell page.


Many of the JRSOs have put together fantastic stories. To give you some ideas we have featured the stories here for you to read. Keep checking for updates and contact your local JRSO if you want to submit your own ideas.

Our Campaign

South Ayrshire
22 Mar 2013

Muirhead Primary Troon

We carried out a survey in the school car park. Over a 20 minute period, we counted 30 cars entering the car park. 2 were staff cleaners, 2 were disabled badge holders and 26 were inappropriate users. Things we noted were that: Pupils from Marr College were crossing through the car park using it as a shortcut. Adults were parking in our car park waiting to collect Marr College pupils. Adults were crossing the car park with Nursery children as a shortcut to go to the golf course. Although there are speed bumps cars were still driving very fast down the access road. Golfers were parking their cars in our car park then going to the golf course Drivers were parking with 2 wheels on the pavement of the access road A driver parked in the passing place at the top of the access road Cars were entering the car park at a fast speed. Drivers were not following the one way system in the car park Many cars were reversing into the car park. We are working very hard to change all this.

St Stephen's PS - Induction Day

North Lanarkshire
14 Sep 2012

We had a great day at the Induction Day. Thank you for teaching us more about road safety. We liked the part where we were shown the JRSO website. We couldn't wait to get started and pass all the information we have learned onto other pupils in the school. This is Lauren and Zoe looking at a helmet that saved a boy's life.


Perth and Kinross
23 Dec 2011

Congratulations to Longforgan Primary School as they have been announced as the winner of the Perth & Kinross Golden Show Award 2011. As well as keeping the Award until November next year, the school also received a Dunolly Outdoor Centre Voucher in the sum of £250.

Through designing and setting up an assault course in the local woods, they were able to combine road safety with other outdoor activities.

Many thanks to Donna Cromb at Perth & Kinross Council for offering our schools this great opportunity.

Our Trip to Edinburgh to Collect Our Award

16 Dec 2011

We are Nathan Ross and Emily Skinner from Knockbreck Primary. We went to the launch of the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 as the poster Emily designed was one of the top ten for the whole of Scotland. We were really pleased that our poster had won and were really excited about going to Edinburgh.

We got up very early so we could catch our train to Edinburgh and were really tired when we arrived. The launch was at New Register House and the event was held in the big archive room. There was a Chief Superintendent and a Chief Fire Officer. We received a framed copy of the poster which is hanging up at the front door of our school. After lunch we went to Our Dynamic Earth with Miss De Jonckheere our Head Teacher.

We really enjoyed going to Dynamic Earth as it was fun!


Smithton – Promoting Road Safety in Our School

15 Dec 2011

Our main event so far this year has been to organise a walk in Culloden woods for the whole school during Walk to School Week. We had a short route for Nursery to P3 and a long route for P4 to P7s. We made up some road safety questions for everyone to figure out on the walk. It was also a non-uniform day and we raised £89.98 for the Archie foundation to help the children’s ward at Raigmore Hospital. We did competitions during the week like design a road sign, design a new method of transport for the future, colour in a road sign, design a reflector, design a jacket and design a new crossing for the River Ness. The prizes we gave out were reflectors for your seatbelt, road safety torches, rubbers, road safety bottles and much more. We have got a notice board which we are putting road safety things on. The photo is of us in front of the board with some of the winning entries displayed. Next we are planning to teach the infant classes the green cross code on the road that’s marked in the playground, to teach them how to be safe on the road. Chloe Torrance & Jessica Fisher JRSO's
