Stay Safe with Thomas – LIVE Read with Inspector Becky Warren from the British Transport Police

Stay Safe with Thomas – LIVE Read with Inspector Becky Warren from the British Transport Police

This broadcast featured Inspector Becky Warren from the British Transport Police, who held a live read of the new Thomas the Tank Engine book, Stay Safe with Thomas.

Network Rail has teamed up with the world’s most famous blue engine and pre-school favourite to help young children learn how to be safe when using the railway.

In the Stay Safe with Thomas story book, the mischievous Thomas has fun on the railway over being safe, putting himself and his friends in harm’s way.

He learns valuable lessons on the dangers of not stopping at a level crossing when the red light shows, leaving gates open to allow animals on to the tracks and standing too close to the edge of a platform.

Network Rail and British Transport Police (BTP) hope the story book will encourage parents to discuss rail safety with their young children in the same manner they teach them about other dangers they may encounter when out and about.

It is the first time Network Rail has partnered with children’s entertainment company Mattel and the first time Mattel has published a Thomas the Tank Engine TM book with a rail safety theme.

This broadcast is suitable for Key Stage 1.

Childhood Flu Immunisation

Childhood Flu Immunisation

Flu is a disease that spreads very rapidly, potentially causing widespread illness, especially in those who are already vulnerable because of their age or medical condition. So if children are vaccinated against flu they will not only benefit directly by being protected themselves, they will also reduce the spread of flu and help protect the whole population. In particular, they will help to protect those children and adults who cannot or do not have the vaccine. This includes children under the age of two and children with illnesses like severe asthma who can become very unwell but who cannot have the vaccine because it is not suitable.

Network Rail Primary School Safety Talk BSL

As part of our Programme to electrify key rail routes across the mainline, the section of railway near your school will be under construction for the installation of the Overhead Line Equipment and be electrified. The safety of people on and around the railway is our priority and education in rail safety is key, especially for young people.

Network Rail is electrifying routes to make journeys more reliable, greener and quieter for thousands of passengers.  The electrification of one of Britain’s busiest and oldest railways will improve connections between major towns and cities across England. Journeys will be smoother and more comfortable for passengers and quieter for people living near the railway.

The overhead lines will be energised at 25,000 volts AC, at 50Hz frequency.  It is of course extremely dangerous for any person to come close to the overhead line equipment or any associated part of it, including the supporting masts, switch feeds and cables.  There is no danger to any persons as long as they remain away from the railway boundary line and fencing.
