Children in Nailsea will be more visible this spring thanks to the Police Community Trust.

Golden Valley Primary School has been given 120 high visibility jackets by Avon and Somerset police.

The jackets were requested by the school's Parents' Association to help keep the children safe when they go on school trips.

PCSO Charlotte Thompson said: "We work closely with local schools and are told that the children often go out on trips in Nailsea, such as woodland walks or to other schools and events on the high street.

"Not only will the high vis jackets make the children more visible to drivers, they will also help the teachers to keep track of them."

Parents' Association chairman Sharon Colley said: "The safety of our children on school trips is paramount to both parents and the school. Avon and Somerset police have kindly donated enough high visibility jackets for two classes to go out together for both teachers and children, and the sizes range from reception right up to the older children.

"These jackets will provide added safety for the children when they are outside the school premises."

The Avon and Somerset Police Community Trust was formed in 1999 to help local communities to become safer, better places to live.

It supports projects and schemes that work towards reducing crime and the fear of crime in the communities where we work and live.
