Road Safety Week runs in November each year and encourages pupils to celebrate the journey to school on foot.
Rachael Ainsworth, Headteacher at Freckleton C of E Primary School where Freckles Preschool Provision is based, said: “We are really grateful for the donation of hi-vis vests. The children loved trying them on and are looking forward to our visits out when we will make very good use of the vests.
“The vests make the children so much more visible to motorists, they are an essential piece of equipment for the darker days or in bad weather. We thank Barratt Homes very much for supporting us to keep the children safe.”
