Persimmon Homes Wessex's gift to make school pupils safer

05 January 2015

Children from a Royal Wootton Bassett primary school have received lessons in safety thanks to Persimmon Homes Wessex.

The region, which is building homes at Kings Court, Cloatley Crescent, decided to support 230 pupils by donating reflective wristbands to help educate them on the importance of walking to school safely.

Every pupil at Longleaze Primary School, in Byron Avenue, received a wristband as part of a safety education topic.

Pauline Fletcher, sales and marketing director for Persimmon Homes Wessex, said: “When we build any new development we want it to become a real part of the community, so it seemed only right that we support local pupils in this way. We hope that the reflective bands will drive home the safety message, especially with the dark nights drawing in.”

Ceri Seal, head of pastoral care at Longleaze Primary, said: “We were delighted that the developers wanted to help the children understand about being safe when they walk to school.

The wristbands were handed out as part of a safety fortnight and they were a great way of reinforcing the messages. Every one of our pupils, aged four to 11 years, was involved and we are delighted with how it went.”

Only a handful of homes now remain for sale at Kings Court, which is already developing a great community spirit. There are a range of properties with five different house styles, from two-bedroom apartments through to spacious five-bedroom homes.
