What is a JRSO?
JRSO stands for Junior Road Safety Officer.
‘At Aston Rowant, pupils at the end of Year 5 apply to be JRSOs. Our team of JRSOs are a huge part of our school as they promote road safety issues within the school and local community.’
JRSOs are a very important part of our school as they help raise road safety awareness and promote road safety issues to everyone in the school and the wider community. Here are just some of the activities we get involved in:
Talk at assemblies and to classes on road safety topics
Run competitions in the school, get prizes for the winners and hand out merit certificates
Use the www.streetwiseguys.co.uk website
Use the members area of the JRSO website www.jrso.com
Employ next year’s JRSOs by displaying the advert, handing out application forms and sitting on the interview panel
Get involved in organising safe and active travel activities.
We share our ideas with other schools.
