Tanys Dell Community Primary School has heard from CPS about road safety following a visit from Blunts Farm ISU team leader Matt Nash.

Matt visited the school to speak to the children and teachers about road safety, what work is carried out on the M25 and the importance of taking home litter.

Road Safety Week is the UK’s biggest road safety event, coordinated annually by Brake and involving thousands of schools, organisations and communities each year. It aims to inspire communities to take action on road safety and promote life-saving messages during the Week and beyond. It also provides a focal point for professionals working in road safety to boost awareness and engagement in their work.

Matt spent time with 120 children across four classes, whose ages range from 5 to 7. The relationship with Tanys Dell has developed from the CPS Adopt a School initiative, and Blunts Farm is the first depot to work with a local school.

The children are busy designing a safety poster, complete with their own picture of a “safe place” and Matt will be judging the competition entries. One highlight of the visit was the chance to try on some PPE, something that always goes down well with children!

Headteacher Bernadette Miele said “I was delighted to receive the letter regarding Tany’s Dell School being ‘adopted’ by Connect Plus Services and am honoured that you chose us. A big thank you to Matt – the children really enjoyed his visit.”
