Road/Rail Safety Education at State Funded Schools

Nigel Jones made this Official Information request to Ministry of Education

The request was successful.

From: Nigel Jones

Dear Ministry of Education,

I'd like to inquire under the Official Information Act the following:

1a) What recommendations or policies are set in place by the MoE for State Funded schools for the education of Road and/or Rail Safety to students, as either part of curriculum or as additional guidance that schools should/must follow?
1b) Could you provide any documents related to such policies/guidance provided to schools.

2) Under what circumstances are Road and/or Rail Safety Education programmes taught (either by schools, or external parties) to students in schools assessed during the regular Education Review Office assessments?

3) Is the Ministry aware of any schools refusing participation in Rail Safety Programmes run by external groups such as TrackSAFE, KiwiRail or Rail Operators/Regional Councils (such as TransDev, TransMetro, Auckland Transport, Wellington Regional Council, etc)? If so, why and could you please provide documentation/correspondence.

(Specifically, for query 3, I'm interested in either correspondence from schools themselves, programme operators, or concerns raised by the general public directly to the Ministry in the last 24 months)

The background for this request is that apparently there was a near-miss at a level crossing today, and apparently several schools near the Auckland Rail network have refused participation in programmes offered, so I am very much curious what the MoE policies & knowledge is.

Yours faithfully,

Nigel Jones
