Somerset - Pupils on track for early road awareness
Pupils at a new primary school in north Somerset will learn road awareness at an early age by riding buggies around their playground.
The rebuilt Bournville Primary in Weston-super-Mare has a mini road track based in one of two outdoor courtyards, which will be used for the activity.
The track is part of a major refurbishment, costing #163;9.7 million, which includes an outdoor stage and a multi-media area. It will also house community facilities including a computer suite and football pitches.
Staff from the local primary care trust, the council and young people's advice provider Connexions will also be based at the 420-pupil school.
Headteacher Adam Matthews said: "We have delivered an aspirational building that is a commitment and investment in the Bournville. It gives the children fantastic facilities and opportunities and is designed for use by the whole community." KM.
