Here you will find out about the role of the Junior Road Safety Officer along with lots of advice to help you make everyone aware of dangers on the road.

What is a JRSO?
Junior Road Safety Officers help their local Road Safety Officer to promote road safety issues within the school and the local community.
Each primary school is encouraged to appoint two JRSOs from Year 6 and two deputy JRSOs from Year 5.
Being a JRSO is a very important job, but it’s also really good fun.

Throughout the year you could be involved in lots of activities:
  • maintaining a notice board and making sure the road safety information is up-to-date
  • talking in Assembly or in Class on road safety themes
  • arranging competitions
  • awarding certificates
  • using the JRSO website
  • even helping to appoint next year’s JRSO
