Independent journeys

As your son or daughter moves through secondary school, he or she will be starting to make more and more independent journeys as a pedestrian, as a cyclist or on public transport, for example:

  • to and from school
  • outings with friends, e.g. to the cinema
  • visiting friends' houses
  • going shopping with friends.

They need to be able to assess the risks and take positive actions to make their journey as safe as possible.
