Children at Stukeley Meadows Primary School were visited by a construction company last month, as part of an effort to spread the word on building site safety.
Held at an assembly during Stukeley Safety Week, the talk by Chalcroft Construction told pupils about the dangers of playing on work sites as well as tips on how to stay safe near them.
One of the schoolteachers even got in on the presentation, showing pupils how best to wear protective equipment.
James Singleterry, head teacher, said: “The children took an active role in the assembly and were enthused by the important messages from the afternoon.”
The day also saw Year 6 students take part in workshops, before designing safety posters for a competition.

Hilary Mayes, marketing development manager at Chalcroft, said: “As well as emphasising the importance of safety and working together, our presentation may spark an interest for a career in construction amongst some of the pupils, which is vital for the industry. Our team thoroughly enjoyed working with the children.”
