Primary school road safety education courses

Safe school run pledge

Norfolk County Council Road Safety Team has been working alongside the Norfolk Road Safety Partners to support school with a school led project to support creating a safe school gate environment.

The Road Safety Communities Team has developed an initiative to support your school in creating a safer school environment during the school run, as well as promoting active travel.

The 'Safe School Run Pledge' is to promote responsible parking which will help keep our children safe when they are dropped off or picked up outside the school.

The project works with parents/carers to promote safe and considerate parking, this is achieved by parents and carers signing the voluntary pledge, helping to ensure that drop off/collections at their School are as safe as possible. The Pledge has been developed with full support from NCC Road Safety Team and their Partners, Norfolk Constabulary and Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service.


To increase understanding and highlight the importance of safe parking outside the school and promote a safe school gate environment

Project details

The Safe School Run Pledge is a school-led project which can be run for a term or a full school year.

This project is suitable for all key stages.

The school-led scheme offers flexibility in delivery, with advice support and guidance from the Norfolk County Council Road Safety Team, Norfolk Constabulary and Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service. Our intention is to support you to highlight and increase parents'/carers' understanding of the importance of safe and considerate parking outside your school while encouraging safe and active journeys.

We supply a great resources pack with everything you need to run the Pledge in your school.


This session is free of charge as funded by Norfolk County Council Public Health.
