The safety of pupils at a Bishop's Stortford primary school has been boosted by a Stortford Fields housebuilder.

Bovis Homes – one of a consortium of four developers building 2,200 homes on the estate between the A120 bypass and A1250 Hadham Road – donated reflective tags to Northgate to mark this year’s Walk to School Month.

The tags, which can be attached to pupils' bags, will help keep them visible as they make their way to and from school this winter.

Walk to School Month is an annual campaign organised by UK charity Living Streets, which encourages children and families to build exercise into their daily routines as well as reducing congestion and pollution.

Katy Jones, Northgate's deputy head, said: “We love encouraging children to walk to school as we know how fresh air can set them up for a day of successful learning. We also appreciate how walking helps the environment.”

Jackie Keegan, sales manager at Stortford Fields, said: “We always like to get involved with Walk to School Month as it's a great way of promoting the health and wellbeing benefits of exercise among both children and their parents. Another bonus is that it reduces the number of cars on the road during the school rush, decreasing traffic congestion and benefiting the environment.”
