Rail Safe (for years 1-3)

The Rail Safe resources provide learning activities to empower students to move safely and responsibly around trains and rail tracks.

What students will learn

These year 1-3 resources will help students to learn to:

  • explain that trains are big and go fast
  • give 2 reasons why they should stay away from trains and the rail corridor
  • explain what a safety line on a platform is
  • describe how to behave when waiting at a railway station.

One focus area

Learning activities are arranged in one focus area.

Focus area 1: Taking care around tracks and trains

Students learn what trains are like, and how to keep safe on a station platform. They identify what they already know about trains and train stations, and how they can teach each other.
