Theatre in Education: Year 7

Welcome to Sussex Safer Roads Partnership’s Look Up! teaching resource designed to help Year 7 students learn about the importance of pedestrian safety. This flexible teaching resource covers how to spot hazards on a journey as a pedestrian, the importance of using our senses in road safety and how to think like a driver to become more aware of the impact behaviour has on safety.

This resource has been designed for teachers, by teachers, and we hope that you find the below resources useful across the school year to help deliver these really important messages to students and help establish good behaviours that will keep them safe.

Each lesson is supported by multi-media content. access the videos below:

Approximately 84 young pedestrians are killed or seriously injured each year in sussex. We are determined to reduce this number through providing education and awareness to those most at risk.

Why we do this

Sussex Safer Roads Partnership has been engaging and supporting schools across Sussex since 2013. In 2020, our free Theatre-in-Education Roadshow, that would normally visit your school, has been temporarily suspended due to the current pandemic. Committed to supporting schools to deliver the life saving messages of pedestrian safety to Year 7s, Sussex Safer Roads Partnership and The Rapport Group are determined that no pupils will miss out on these vital messages that help keep young people safe.

We hope that you join us on our mission by using this resource. We know how busy teachers are, so we aim to make all of our resources as flexible as possible allowing teachers to do what they are best at, teach.
