Road safety at Kerr Mackie Primary School

Road safety Feb 2015

A group of our Year 5 children are outside this afternon with our local PCSO's talking to parents about road safety and dangerous parking.  They will be giving out tickets they have designed in class and speaking to parents about the dangers of parking on the zig zags and pavements.



Children's charter

At the start of the year we asked children to really think about what rights they feel they should have whilst as school, and also what their responsibilities are.  We are very proud of the ideas they came up with.  We have put them together to create a ‘Children’s Charter’ (see below). 

Kerr Mackie Children’s Charter

  • We have the right to be respected, and the responsibility to listen to and care for those around us to make sure we are showing respect to them

  • We have the right to learn to our full potential, and the responsibility to behave in way that means we are not disturbing the learning of others

  • We have the right to equipment that will help us with our learning, and the responsibility to treat all equipment with respect and not damage it for others

  • We have the right to be healthy, and the responsibility to make smart choices with our food and drink, and join in with as much physical activity as we can

  • We have the right to be treated equally, and the responsibility to treat everyone else the same as ourselves
