What is a JRSO?
A JRSO is a Year 5 or 6 pupil who is chosen by their school to promote road safety awareness in their school to all pupils, parents and staff.
They will work with the support of a school staff helper and a member of Via East Midland's Road Safety Team. Via East Midlands, now deliver road safety education services on behalf of Nottinghamshire County Council.
What does a JRSO do?
