Children and schools


We want to promote safe and sustainable travel for children.

We work with schools to provide road safety educational resources that compliment the national curriculum.

Our Travel Smart initiative supports sustainable travel to school during the national walk to school week campaigns.

Our school crossing patrols provide additional support for the safety of children and their parents and carers walking to and from school. School crossing patrols are currently provided at around 130 sites throughout the county, making a vital contribution to ensuring that Derbyshire children travel safely to and from school.

To ensure our road safety work with children is focussed on the areas of greatest need we have updated our Child Road Safety Audit which is attached to this page.

The audit gives details of the road risk to children across the county both geographically and by casualty type.
