Students at Robert Miles Infant School, Bingham, receive high-vis gift for Road Safety Week
Primary school pupils received a donation of hi-vis kit bags to help them stay safe for Road Safety Week.
Robert Miles Infants School in Bingham received 35 reflective bags from Barratt Homes to help the children be seen as they walk to and from school.
The five-star housebuilder made the donation as part of the annual Road Safety Week.
Sonja Adams, head of school at Robert Miles Infant School, said: “Monday through Friday, our pupils come to school to learn and develop. As such, their safety is of the utmost importance to us.
“That’s why we’re incredibly grateful to Barratt and David Wilson Homes for its high vis kit bag donation. We were thrilled to accept the bags and our pupils will be using them during Road Safety Week and in the future.”
Robert Miles Infant School is located near the homebuilder’s Romans’ Quarter development on Dunsmore Avenue and the donation of hi-vis gear is part of Barratt Homes’ outreach to the local community.
Mark Cotes, managing director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “We want to ensure the pupils in the local communities remain visible now the darker nights are here and our donation has hopefully still encouraged them to get involved with Road Safety Week.
“This is a campaign we actively support each year as we endeavour to help local children in their efforts to commute to school by foot, bike, bus and car, as well as being on hand to support local schools in and around the communities we build.
“As a result of the covid-19 crisis, it’s even more important for us to support the local schools, so we’re thrilled to have had the chance to support Robert Miles Infant School during Road Safety Week.”
The kit bags have been useful to pupils during Walk to School Month and Road Safety Week, and are set to benefit them on their journeys to school throughout the winter months.
