Homebuilder Countryside took to the classroom this month to teach Liverpool children about the dangers of construction sites ahead of the school holidays.
Pupils of Belle Vale Community Primary School were given an extra lesson in health and safety with a fun, yet informative, assembly to raise awareness of potential hazards that pupils may face when playing near building sites.
The primary school is the nearest school to Countryside’s new Gateacre Park and Belgravia developments, which are being built on the former Gateacre School site. The two developments will be made up of 200 new homes, many of which will be available to buy through the Help to Buy scheme.
Colin Murray, Regional Health and Safety Manager, Countryside, said: “The health and safety assemblies are a fantastic way to raise awareness about the potential dangers of construction sites. When building a new development, working with and supporting the local community is a high priority for Countryside and educating the local children on safety is a vital part of this.”
Janette Walker, Headteacher, Belle Vale Community Primary School, commented: “We want to thank Countryside for coming into the school to talk to our pupils about the dangers of construction sites. With the Christmas holidays coming up, we know that some of our children will be out playing near the developments and with their natural curiosity, they will want to look around, hopefully now they will take extra care and know what to do to stay safe.”
