Trespassing on Railway Lines Near School

I would like to introduce myself, I am Kathryn the Deputy Director at Learn LIVE. We are working in partnership with Network Rail to keep young individuals safe near the railways. Network Rail in partnership with Learn Live are working to help raise awareness by educating your students about the dangers of the train tracks through interactive digital delivery.

 

We urgently need you to please share the relevant safety videos. The session is less than 15 minutes and explains why it is important to stay safe near the tracks.

 

Over 14 million students, parents and teachers from across the UK have already watched these videos which has led to a significant decrease in the number of incidents in their area through watching the safety videos.

 

Remember 15 mins can help save lives and provide important safety information to young people. We have made things easier for you to watch the free safety videos by just entering the email railsafety@learnliveuk.com into the “I am registered field” when you first watch the videos.
