Giving Roots to Grow

News and Events in and around school.



SAFEMARK aims to prepare children for the world of public transport, prior to their transition to secondary school.

Designed for Year-6 pupils about to move up to secondary school, Junior SAFEMARK workshops provide 11 year-olds with the skills and confidence to use public transport. At this stage in their life many young people experience public transport for the first time as they travel to their new school, or become more independent in their free time. Junior SAFEMARK teaches them how to read timetables, plan journeys and how to behave safely when travelling.
