Glasgow City Council’s Lord Provost’s Road Safety Award is an annual award given to primary schools throughout the city that have made a clear commitment to road safety education. Education is the key element in reducing child casualties and every school that support’s this programme will help ensure that every child in Glasgow has the necessary road skills for life.

Last week the Road Safety Awards ceremony took place at the City Chambers and 63 schools were in attendance to receive their awards including several schools in the local area. These included Antonine, Bankhead, Broomhill, Clyde, Corpus Christi, Jordanhill, Langfaulds, St Brendan’s, St Paul’s (Whiteinch) and Thornwood Primary schools. Well done to all the schools!

Each school has undertaken a range of road safety education with support from the Council’s Road Safety Team and others. The school uses a dedicated page on the GoSafeGlasgow.com website where they are able to monitor their progress using traffic light indicators to show their progress for each pupil year group.

For P6 this also includes Bikeability Level 2 on road training and we were delighted to support St Paul’s, Corpus Christi and Bankhead Primaries in their Bikeability programme last year.
