Here at Ruislip Gardens we take Road Safety for our children, parents and staff very seriously. We regularly promote and discuss active and safe travel with our children. We are also fortunate to have workshops and visitors in to the school who work with the children to develop their awareness. We encourage active travel with our children and have a number of bike shelters and scooter pods for storage. We also use the local bus and underground for trips. Please do take time to read through the Ruislip Gardens Road Management Booklet.
We have 8 Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs) at Ruislip Gardens. They are actively involved in developing road safety awareness amongst their peers and the wider community. They work closely with the Leadership Team as well as the Local Authority. They have also undertaken training and have been successful in applying for funding to promote road safety here at Ruislip Gardens.
This year we have been fortunate enough to have Bikeability workshops, two theatre companies in to perform for the children about road safety through drama, pedestrian training and road safety workshops. We have also taken part in the Big Pedal, the 1000 mile walking challenge, the walking bears and the pedometer challenge. We also took part in Hillingdon’s Be Bright Be Seen Day, where we were joint first brightest school in Hillingdon and won 100 Hi – Vis trip bags.
We have also been able to involve our parents in taking an active role in our road safety campaign, by asking them to sign the Parent Parking Pledge. All those that sign the pledge are given a car sticker to display in their window.

The school recognises the value and uniqueness of each individual child and adult at Ruislip Gardens. We celebrate the talents and gifts of each child and enable them to develop to their full potential spiritually, morally, academically, socially and physically.
