All vehicles are heavy and hard and can hit and hurt people. At higher speeds they cause more damage. At higher speeds, a driver has less time to react if a child steps out in front of them. They are more likely to hit that child and will hit them harder. Fast traffic is dangerous, frightening, noisy and polluting. It makes roads unwelcome and puts people off walking and cycling.

You can read all the facts about road speed in this handy fact sheet or watch this video to gain a better understanding of why speed matters.

Meanwhile don’t forget the importance of being bright and being seen in these long dark nights of winter. We are selling reflective items in the kiosk.

Odd Socks Day on Friendship Friday

Odd Socks day will take place at Alfriston on Friday 17th November or, as we like to call it, Friendship Friday.  There is no pressure on the children to wear the latest fashion or for parents to buy expensive costumes. All they have to do to take part is wear odd socks to school, it couldn’t be simpler! 

You do not have to raise money to take part – the most important thing is the message of Odd Socks Day – it’s an opportunity for children to express themselves and appreciate individuality and uniqueness! Please encourage your daughter to wear odd socks (for one day only!) to show her support for friends and her commitment to Anti Bullying Week.

We’re all different, all equal.
