Road Safety Resources

Resources and apps to help you learn about and practice road safety

Making decisions about how to travel are an essential life skill.

At an early age children need to learn to recognise the hazards of the road environment and, as they grow older, they should be prepared for their independence as road users. This includes accepting responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others, looking after their health and considering the environmental impact of their travel decisions.

We have a range of educational resources that can help children and adults acquire these skills, from instructor led training on public roads, to support for self-help and curriculum work.

We have developed a number of online parent resources that you can access to increase your child's road safety knowledge, which will help to keep them safe when walking to and from school, in their community or places they visit.

You can access these on-line platforms for free using the following details:

Username: Westberkshire

Password: Saf3rst3ps201920

The first "s" in the password is a capital letter. The password is case sensitive.

Route Guard Travel App

Route Guard is a pioneering app that uses geolocation technology to give reassurance to parents/guardians and security to children for their local unaccompanied journeys.

The Route Guard app is available to download from Apple and Android stores.

As a Route Guardian, parents will be able to plan, monitor and adjust routes and pre-defined zones, encouraging mutual agreement with their child.

In order to use Route Guard, the app requires parents and guardians to use a code which will only be issued by a registered school or local authority. This is to ensure that the app is only being used by legitimate guardians.

It is free for all schools and local authorities to sign up, which can be done via the Route Guard website.

Get Your Coat (GYC) Travel Planning App

Get Your Coat (GYC) is an app designed to provide intelligent travel planning, reminders and support for a night out on the town whilst staying safe at the same time.

The GYC app is available free to download from Apple and Android stores.
