In May 2017 we started delivering Junior SAFEMARK transition workshops to 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 workshops taught them how to read timetables, plan journeys and how to behave safely when travelling. In total we delivered 82 SAFEMARK workshops and supported 2644 children to improve their safety whilst travelling on public transport and feel more confident in their transition to secondary school.
