    Curriculum for Excellence

    As most people use roads on a fairly regular basis, it is important to make sure that we can do so as safely as possible. Scotland’s Road Safety Framework to 2020, launched in 2009 by the Scottish Government, describes Scotland’s road safety vision and the targets for reducing road casualties.

    The road environment still represents one of the highest causes of accidental death to our young people.

    It is important, therefore, to maintain the excellent road safety support that already exists in schools and communities. Teachers, early years staff, parents, carers, road safety officers and lecturers can continue to work in partnership by engaging children and young people in active and experiential learning. What our children learn now, could last them a lifetime.

    This booklet provides information on road safety resources developed specifically to support Curriculum for Excellence in all schools.
