Kerbcraft has been running successfully in a number of Cardiff schools since September 2002 and has been very well received by participating schools.
The scheme is currently funded by the Welsh Assembly Government and runs for a maximum of 12 consecutive weeks at each school.
‘Kerbcraft’ uses practical pedestrian training methods to improve young children’s kerbside skills and raise their awareness of traffic.
Parent volunteers and/or classroom assistants act as trainers for the scheme, working with very small groups of children and helping them to develop their observational skills and decision-making processes.
If you are a parent, teacher or school governor and want to find out about starting Kerbcraft in your school, please contact the Child Pedestrian Training Coordinator on 029 2078 8523.
