Kerbcraft

Kerbcraft teaches children in year 2 how to be safer pedestrians by taking them onto roads and showing them how to make the right decisions to keep safe. It also contributes to the safety aspect of the Healthy Schools Scheme as it can play a key role in promoting better health and safety for children.

Children are taken out of school in small groups by trained volunteers and Cardiff Council’s Kerbcraft Support Officers, to learn three main skills: 


  1. Choosing Safe Places and Routes to Cross the Road
    Children are helped to recognise dangers and hazards and identify alternative crossing places.
  2. Crossing Safely at Parked Cars
    Children are taught how to use a safe strategy for crossing near parked cars - when avoiding them is impossible.
  3. Crossing Safely Near Junctions
    Children are introduced to the problems of simple and complex junctions, and taught a strategy for looking systematically in all directions.


Each skill is practised at several different locations during the training, in liaison with the school and its timetable. Each group of children will be taken out for 20-30 minutes each session.  


Kerbcraft is a national strategy for child pedestrian safety funded by the Welsh Government. 


If you are a parent, teacher or school governor and want to find out about starting Kerbcraft in your school, please contact the Road Safety and Training Team or telephone 029 2078 8521.
