The Go Learn programme, which is delivered by Sussex Community Rail Partnership and Southern, will help your pupils develop confidence and skills for safe, independent travel on public transport to secondary school. It provides your pupils with the skills to plan journeys, purchase tickets, and use rail services safely and confidently. It also promotes sustainable travel. It is aimed at Year 6 pupils and is free of charge.
Your Year 6 pupils can attend a Junior Citizen event in West Sussex, or a Safety In Action event in East Sussex and meet Southern’s Rail Enforcement Officers (REOs). These sessions are part of a day long event where pupils will meet organisations such as Fire and Rescue Service, Sussex Police and the RNLI, and develop their confidence in dealing with new experiences. Our REOs talk about how to stay safe on the railways.
