Network Rail Safety Campaign

Network Rail Safety Campaign

In January, Network Rail contacted us to raise awareness of the risks to children and youths related to negligence near trains.

Their campaign has been developed in relation to the tragic death of Harrison Ballantyne in 2017, when he was in Year 7 at Guilsborough Academy.

Over 20 million students, parents and teachers from across the UK have watched these videos which has led to a significant decrease in the number of fatalities and injuries in their area through watching the safety videos.

Below is the link to the videos we showed in school so you, as parents can watch them at home.

Y3 & Y4 pupils watched- NEW Primary school version: Suitable for KS1 https://learnliveuk.com/ks1-primary-school-safety-talk/  This video uses a railway safety story book to support their understanding of how to keep safe near the railway.

Y5 & Y6 pupils watched- NEW Primary school version: Suitable for KS2 https://learnliveuk.com/network-rail-primary-school-safety-talk  This video includes a re-enactment of how Harrison died followed by a Learn Live broadcast discussion/ question session.
