About the scheme

What is the Junior Road Safety Officer (JRSO) role?

The Junior Road Safety Officer Scheme is FREE to all primary schools across South Yorkshire. The role of the JRSO is to encourage safety within their school community and for everyone to take responsibility for their own safety on the road when out and about. They can do this by addressing road safety issues on a regular basis throughout the school year.

Each school is asked to nominate at least two pupils from year 6 or year five, that would like to take on the role of Junior Road Safety Officer.

How to get involved, what are the next steps?

Once your JRSOs have been selected, get in touch with our JRSO Co-ordinator or local Road Safety Team to arrange delivery of your starter pack and set up an informal meeting to discuss ideas about what you would like to do within school.

In June we ask all the JRSOs to submit a folder of their work including photos, posters and their completed handbook. The folders will be entered into a countywide competition, where prizes will be awarded in recognition of the outstanding work delivered by the JRSOs.

Everyone will receive a certificate for taking part to thank them for their dedication to sharing road safety messages.

If you require any further information about the scheme, please don't hesitate to contact your local road safety team or email enquiries@sysrp.co.uk

We look forward to hearing from you!
