PUPILS a school in the Teme Valley have been learning about safety on a building site. Children Clifton upon Teme Primary School attended Lovell Homes’ The Meadows development to learn the importance of site safety.

The 12 students were introduced to the equipment used within construction and the importance of health and safety on site in an educational assembly lead by Lovell Homes.

They were then given a behind-the-scenes tour of the new homes being built in the village.

“With the school being so close to The Meadows, we wanted to introduce the children to the potential dangers on site,” said Michelle Barnsley, Field Sales Manager at Lovell Midlands.

“The pupils interacted in both the assembly and the site visit and it was great to see them enjoying themselves!”

Cathryn Throup, Headteacher at Clifton upon Teme Primary School said the visit linked with their work.

“The children have recently been learning about ‘Homes’ in their topic work, so it was a golden opportunity for them to experience this enrichment activity,” she said.

“They have been very curious about the new homes being built so close to our school and Lovell kindly offered the children a supervised visit to the site.

“The children loved looking around the local development and learnt a lot about health and safety on and around building sites.”
