Partnerships

This project has cemented partnerships with senior schools and has allowed our organisation the opportunity to work within the National Curriculum.

Many local senior schools are now incorporating the safety quiz within their timetable on an annual basis.

Updated website

You may have noticed, the Be Cool Be Safe website has had an update!

The new site should work better on mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets.

Stay tuned for more developments, we will be adding more quiz questions and information in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, the Be Cool Be Safe Book is now available for download.
