Bright safety boost for Fairfield School Pupils

March 12, 2018

Pupils at Fairfield Infant and Nursery School love getting out and about to learn about the world around them. And now these school trips have taken a step up in safety with the donation of a full set of high visibility jackets from nearby company Tarmac.

With its rural location, class trips in the local area involve walking along, and crossing several roads. In the past the school did not have enough high visibility jackets for the whole group and many of them were badly fitting for smaller walkers who can be as young as two. With Tarmac’s expertise in appropriate safety wear, they purchased 36 mini-sized jackets and donated them to the school which has 211 pupils aged from two to seven.

Nursery teacher Sarah Hewitt said: “We are delighted to have a full set of suitable safety jackets for our pupils to use on school trips. Experiences outside the classroom play a very important role in children’s education – so now we can take them out with the peace of mind that they can all be seen and extra safe.”

Tarmac’s Administrator and member of the Tunstead community committee, Linda Grooby added: “Commitment to safety and wearing the appropriate safety gear is extremely important for us – our motto is ‘work safe, home safe’ – so this was a fantastic project for us to support. We hope the children enjoy wearing their bright new jackets on trips out and about.”
