On 6th December 2021 we welcomed The Riot Act Theatre Company who delivered a road safety workshop to Year 7 pupils called ‘Deadly Distractions’, commissioned by the Redbridge Smarter Travel team. ‘Deadly Distraction’ focused on key road safety messages such as:
• Distractions such as phones and music
• Identifying and coping with peer pressure
• Personal responsibility and behaviour
Not only did the performance provide essential road safety knowledge for our year 7 pupils who are now emerging as independent travellers, but it also covered key social aspects such as peer pressure, responsibilities and friendships. It was an engaging, informative and thought provoking performance and our Year 7 pupils were reminded of how they can keep safe in the community.
