Children in Outwood learn about site safety

Published 20 September 2017

Children from Outwood Primary School Academy have been working closely with WDH to learn about the importance of staying safe near building sites.

The children heard from WDH at a special assembly and created posters afterwards to show what they learnt.

Children from all year groups entered posters for the chance to win a £10 shopping voucher.

Chris Croxall and Natalie Grinsill, WDH’s Tenant Involvement Officers and Tom Elliott, WDH’s New Build Surveyor were faced with the difficult task of  choosing one winner from each school year.

The posters will be displayed around WDH’s nearby site to warn other children and members of the public of the dangers.

The new development at Kirkham Avenue includes eight three bedroom semi-detached houses for sale on a shared ownership basis.

Each class has also given suggestions to name a street on the new development and these will be submitted, to Wakefield Council to choose a winner.

Tom said: “We are very impressed with all of the posters. It showed that they listened and have a lot of knowledge about site safety. The children put a lot of effort into making their posters which was proven by the quality and detail that they included.”
