Partnering with Tackling Track Safety Project
Monday 25th July, 2016
The Tackling Track Safety Project was devised as an effective and fun way of delivering the important Rail Safety messages to children across the country by incorporating them into a sporting environment.
The project consists of a Key Stage 2, 3 & 4 assembly which outlines the dangers of the railway and ways to ensure safety, followed by 5 activity sessions for children in year 5 which focus on the key messages about the Railway.
The KS2 children all receive a Tackling Track Safety work booklet and over the duration of the project they are able to show what they have learnt during the activity sessions by answering multiple choice questions in their booklet.
Further to the school based curriculum delivery, local Professional/Semi Professional clubs such as Salford City FC – who recently delivered a project in Walkden, Greater Manchester on behalf of Tackling Track Safety CIC – also deliver diversionary activities within their local communities targeting 14-24 year olds and incorporating vital rail safety education within these sessions.
Former Manchester United midfielder and Co-Owner of Salford City Football Club Paul Scholes has become an ambassador for the project and recently visited Christ The King Primary School in Walkden during the clubs delivery of Tackling Track Safety at the school.
