The Department has not issued guidelines to schools on how children should wear seat belts correctly. In 2001 we issued "Safety Education: Guidance for Schools", which includes general guidance on how road safety education may be provided. This guidance can be found at:

The Department also works with the Department for Transport and other stakeholders on road safety issues for children and young people.
