Our Railway's Future
The safety of people on and around the railway is our priority. Education is key, especially for young people, so we’ve launched Rail Life.
Rail Life provides teachers, professionals working with young people and parents with resources that will engage young people when talking about rail safety issues. The materials have been developed with teachers to match curriculum areas and deliver Ofsted teaching requirements.
We’ve also developed a high impact website, rail-life.co.uk, with videos, advice, and lots of content on rail safety for 12-17 year olds.
Safety information for railway staff and partner organisations can be found at Safety Central.
Lesson plan activities help you run fun, interactive classes about rail safety and even include a song, Cross Safe. An assembly kit provides for an interactive assembly about level crossing safety. These resources can also be used by community groups to organise activities.
The lesson plan activities help you run engaging classes on rail safety across a number of curriculum areas. The assembly kit provides resources for an interactive and thought-provoking assembly about level crossing safety. These can also be used by community groups to organise activities.
Information for parents includes a factsheet explaining how to use level crossings safely and a safety guide which explains the dangers of being on the railway.
The Rail Life website, part of our new safety initiative, was created by young people for young people. Aimed at 12 to 17-year-olds, the website contains videos, advice and lots of rail safety information.
