Child pedestrian casualties in Kirklees increase significantly when children transfer to secondary school.  Your Year 6/7 children are more at risk because they begin to make their way to school independently, they must cross busier roads, travel further on unfamiliar roads and manage their own distractions, such as mobile phones.

To help prepare your new Year 6/7 children for their move to secondary school and to make their journeys to school safer, please have a read through the attached parents’ and pupils’ leaflets to help prepare your children for this new journey.
