Heathcote pupils will be seen in the dark thanks to hi-vis vests

PUPILS will be seen in the dark on their way to and from school after they were given hi-visibility vests.

Children from the new Heathcote Primary School in Warwick were given the tops – which were donated by homebuilder Barratt Homes – to ensure they are seen during International Walk to School Month.

The campaign encourages youngsters to walk to school in a bid to improve fitness levels.

Headteacher Lara Jeffries said: “Since opening Heathcote Primary we have promoted walking to school – we are focused on being healthy, happy and environmentally friendly.

“I welcome the children as they walk through our school gates every day. In a time where childhood obesity is a real issue in the UK we need to really push walking as a solution.”
