Usk Pupils Receive Crucial Road Safety Training
Year Three pupils in Usk Primary School who completed the national Kerbcraft pedestrian training programme have been presented with certificates by the Chairman of Monmouthshire County Council, Councillor Brian Strong.
Accompanied by Monmouthshire County Council’s Kerbcraft training staff and parent volunteers, the children have been taught to recognise appropriate places to cross roads and acquire skills to become safer pedestrians.
Usk Primary is just one of many schools that participate in the Kerbcraft pedestrian training scheme managed by the council. Offered to all schools in the county, the Welsh government-funded scheme is administered by three staff assisted by over sixty volunteers. In the previous 12 months, over 900 children in Monmouthshire have received Kerbcraft training.
Cabinet member with responsibility for road safety, Councillor Bryan Jones said: “The Kerbcraft pedestrian training scheme is invaluable as it instils the importance of road safety at an early age and ultimately saves lives.”
