PUPILS at West Haddon Primary School learnt about road safety in an unusual way yesterday (Wednesday).

The children from Year Three and Four had a visit from an Eddie Stobart lorry as part of a talk on road safety.

They got to learn about stopping distances, blind spots for drivers as well as the importance of high visibility jackets and seatbelts.

The morning was finished off with a road safety quiz and the school was claiming the visit was an enormous success. Headteacher David Rosevear said: “It was fantastic to give them this opportunity.

“The children really loved it, they really like having visitors so having a police officer and a PCSO was something they really liked.”
