BACT partners and local palletised distribution network Palletforce, have been on hand to help a Burton primary school in their quest to get a better understanding of road safety.

Youngsters from Rykneld Primary School, Branston, have currently been taking to the roads on their bicycles to try and gain a better understanding of all things road safety. The youngsters from KS2 at the school completed a ‘Bikeability’ course, with Palletforce kindly donating high visibility bands for the children to wear whilst doing their training.

This morning (Friday 4th November) saw BACT help the youngsters to complete their full training in road safety awareness, covering subjects such as the Green Cross Code, ways of how to spot danger, as well as looking at the appropriate protective gear in which they should wear whilst out in venerable places.

Representatives from BACT, Palletforce and the local Police Force were in attendance for the assembly, which was also classed as a morning of celebration for the youngster’s hard work over the past number of weeks.

Health and Inclusion Team Leader, Paul Furniss, who lead the assembly on road safety, said: “All the children really engaged with the assembly and took the key messages on board. It was a really interactive assembly with really good and intelligent contributions. We must also say a big thank you to our partners Palletforce who continue to support the work that BACT do, along with donating 250 illuminous bands that can hopefully keep the children safe whilst out on the roads.”
