Children learnt the green cross code on a new road in their school with the help of their lollipop lady.

Karen Reading is normally seen outside the school gates at Broadford Primary School in the mornings and afternoons, but decided to pay a visit to pupils this week to give advice.

With a new trike track open in the new Early Years garden Mrs Reading showed the children how to cross the road safely.

The road has been marked up with pedestrian crossings, speed humps and give-way signs to help the children get a good understanding of how to behave on the road and when walking alongside it.

Mrs Stanley, the Early Years leader at the school, said: “Since the track has been open we have noticed that the children are much more aware of the crossings.

“We have shown them how to stop carefully and be aware of other road users. The visit from our lollipop lady - who showed them how to use the crossing properly - has helped us establish junior road safety officers.”
