Pupils at Wixams Tree Primary School have received a donation of hi-vis vests from Barratt Homes to help them remain safe and seen as part of Walk to School Month.
Barratt Homes Northampton has given the school 35 of the safety jackets for their pupils to wear whilst walking to and from school, ensuring they can be easily seen on the roads as the darker nights draw in.
Walk to School Month runs for the duration of October and encourages pupils to celebrate the journey to school on foot.
The homebuilder’s development Willow Grove is located close to Wixams Tree Primary School and the donation of hi-vis vests is a part of Barratt Homes’ commitment to the education facility.
Mary Langley, Head Teacher at Wixams Tree Primary School, said: “It is wonderful to be working with Barratt Homes to encourage children at Wixams Tree Primary to walk to school and be safe. We will be using the donations of the hi-vis vests as prizes for our Walk to School Month poster competition. We look forward to further collaboration with Barratt Homes as the Wixams development expands.”
Alison Raine, Sales Director at Barratt Homes Northampton, said: “With many of our developments having schools located close by, we want to ensure pupils remain safe and visible as the nights draw in.
“We are supporting Walk to School Month with a donation of hi-vis vests to Wixams Tree Primary School, helping the children to stay seen whilst maintaining their ambition to make the journey to school on foot.”
Barratt Homes’ hi-vis vests are now certain to benefit the pupils in their future commute to school throughout the winter months.
Willow Grove currently has a selection of two and three bedroom homes available in Wixams with prices starting from £236,995.
