Road safety chiefs have urged parents to put in some preparation to ensure their child's journey back to school is as safe as possible.
If children walk to school they need to be reminded of crossing the road safely, from suitable crossing places, being alert and avoiding distractions such as mobile phones or headphones.
Sue Snoddy, casualty reduction and road safety partnership manager, said: “Going back to school or starting school for the first time is a big event for children and we need to ensure that important journey is as safe as possible.”
