Visit from the Gritter Lorry and the Road Safety Team

5th October 2023
Today we  had a rather unusual visit to school – a Local Authority gritter lorry!! The county road safety team parked the lorry in the middle of the playground for a morning and each class was able to go out and have a closer look. All of the children had the chance to sit in the driver’s seat and see how the other children in their class disappeared from view in the driver’s blind spot. The aim of the visit was to make all of the children more aware of how much drivers of large vehicles can see and how vulnerable they are when they are out on foot or cycling.
