October is Walk to School month and leading homebuilder, Miller Homes, is helping children in York travel to and from school safely by donating high-vis vests to children local to its Langley Park development in the city, as part of its Home Safe initiative.
Children’s high-vis vests have been donated to Poppleton Road Primary School, who will use them to help keep children safe on school visits and off-site activities in the coming months.
Mrs Glover, Head Teacher, Poppleton Road Primary School commented; “We are delighted to accept the donation of high-vis vests for our children and to see the Miller Homes team supporting other children in our community too.”
According to the most recent Government reports, the national average for children who walk to school is 46%. This is likely to increase in winter, as families look to be healthier and more energy efficient.
Debbie Whittingham, Sales Director for Miller Homes Yorkshire, said: “Getting to and from school is such an important part of a child’s daily routine and being active while doing it is great for their mental and physical wellbeing. Our Home Safe initiative is designed to help children to be as safe as possible on those journeys, educating them on the importance of being visible to other road users, which will instil good safety habits for years to come.”
