Safety for the young.

Youngsters from Kirklees schools have been getting the safety message.

They have been taking part in Metro's annual Junior SafeMark training scheme.

Year 6 pupils from nine schools have been going to training workshops.

The aim is to educate them about using public transport safely.

From September, many Year 6 pupils across Kirklees and West Yorkshire will be using buses and trains to travel to and from school.

For many of them it will be the first time they have used public transport unaccompanied.

The SafeMark training workshops provide the pupils with the skills and knowledge they need to use public transport safely and confidently.

During the 90-minute workshops pupils take part in hands-on, interactive activities in small groups.

These groups are led by Metro, bus and rail company and road safety officials.

The Kirklees schools taking part were:

Helme C of E Voluntary Aided Junior and Infant School; Scapegoat Hill Junior and Infant School; Flockton C of E Voluntary Controlled First School; Beech Early Years Infant and Junior School at Golcar; Emley First School; St John's C of E Voluntary Aided Junior and Infant School, Golcar; Meltham Moor Primary School; Golcar Junior Infant and Nursery School; and Meltham C of E Primary School.
