I am delighted to welcome you to my Lord Provost's Road Safety Award.
Glasgow is quite rightly proud of its achievements over the past decade, with road casualties now at their lowest since records began in the 1930's.
We are also progressing well towards the Scottish Government road casualty targets set to 2020 with a 40% reduction in child serious injuries compared to the 2004/8 average and for only the second time on record no child was killed on our roads.
This could not have been achieved without your support and that of your staff in ensuring that every child in your establishment has received the necessary road safety education to make them safer road users for life.
I want to recognise this good work and encourage you to continue to deliver this vital service on my behalf to make sure we continue to reduce child casualties in Glasgow and help me achieve, my vision, where no child is killed or seriously injured on our roads.
So let's 'Go Safe Glasgow' and I will look forward to meeting you and your children when I present you with this prestigious award.
The plan will require a commitment from your school to deliver a minimum amount of road safety education and training to every pupil at every stage of their development, but don't worry too much about making this commitment as your dedicated road safety assistant will be on hand to provide all the relevant information required to help you throughout the process.
The website has been designed to be as easy as possible to navigate and the car at the foot of the page indicates your schools overall progress towards your ultimate goal of being presented with the Lord Provost's Road Safety Award and also guarantees you a place at special awards ceremony being held at the city chambers.
By clicking on the relevant primary stage, you will see a list of activities, all you need to do is choose which activity you would like to deliver and the information box will provide the necessary information required.
The traffic light system shows how each primary stage is progressing with:
Here's the commitment part: we expect you to choose and deliver one activity from the drop down list and your road safety assistant will deliver any other activity of your choice, however you will receive all the support necessary to complete both activities!
...and that's it, however, if your school delivers two activities from the voluntary activities listed, you will receive a special distinction award, for helping to make your local community safer for all.
Go Safe Glasgow!
