Be 'Rail Safe' 

Due to increasing incidents of trespass on the railway near our school, we invite you to please watch this 15 minute safety video provided by The Rail Safe Friendly Team.

Over 21 million students, parents and teachers from across the UK have already watched these videos which has led to a significant decrease in the number of fatalities and injuries in their area through watching the rail safety videos.

‘The tragic death of Harrison in 2017, when he was in Year 7 at Guilsborough Academy, brought home to our community the importance of teaching our children about safety on the railways. Schools play a vital role in keeping our children safe.’ - 
Simon Frazer, Principal at Guilsborough Academy.

Please watch the appropriate video for your child's age, before sharing it with your child. These are the recommended age ranges, we would always advise you to view the clips first to gauge suitability for your child.

Thank you for helping us raise awareness of rail safety.

Kind Regards,

The Rail Safe Friendly Team
