Students at Hartington C of E Primary School have been learning all about the importance of road safety following a visit from local police.

PCSO Hayley Grundy and PCSO Ian Phipps from the Bakewell and Tideswell Safer Neighbourhood Team met with youngsters from Hartington C of E Primary School to talk all things road safety.

During the visit on Friday, July 10, the policing team spoke to the class of 5 to 11-years-olds about staying safe when out and about, including how to safely cross the road and listening out for traffic.

Head Teacher, Tracy Blackwell said: “The lesson with local officers was so informative for both staff and the children. They learnt about how to make sure they cross the road safely including looking both ways before stepping out into the road and listening carefully for traffic.

“A member of our local community spotted us in the village and came out to explain more about how partially sighted and blind people cross the road using different aids. It was a really great and interactive lesson.”
