This exciting scheme promotes active and safer travel to and from school. Junior Travel Ambassador (JTA) is aimed at Year 5 pupils and empowers them to make their own decisions about what they think needs to change to improve road safety for their school.
JTAs also encourages pupils to get more active and lead healthier lifestyles.
Setting up a Junior Travel Ambassador scheme
At least two JTAs are chosen to represent the school and have an adult mentor to help and support them. The adult can be a member of staff, governor or an interested parent.
All JTAs will receive a badge and will meet regularly with a Road Safety Officer, usually half termly. As well as advice and support, the Road Safety officer will provide educational resources and prizes for competitions. This scheme is free to all schools.
