Students at Temple Hill primary school recently enjoyed a visit from Barratt Homes, who presented to them an assembly on how to stay safe near building sites.
The presentation was part of an ongoing education programme between local schools and Barratt Homes, informing children in years four to six of the potential dangers that a building site holds.
Deputy head teacher, Leon Dawson, said: “The fun and engaging nature of the assembly allowed the children to really take on the message about safety on site, and we hope that they will practice this safety going forwards.”
The students were also introduced to the site mascot, who shared the site safety signs and spoke to the children about their meanings.
Natalie Perry, Director of Sales and Marketing for Barratt Homes, commented: “When building in an area we are keen to work with the local community to ensure that children, who might see a site as more of a big playground at first, are safe.”
Barratt Homes believe the project to be a useful safety message, as well as an engaging way to allow children to see the work that goes into building the houses many of them live in today.
