Pupils have learned about the dangers of building sites while on a visit to a new David Wilson Homes development near Barlaston. The Year Four pupils from Barlaston First School and their Head Teacher took the educational tour at the homebuilder’s luxury Wedgwood Park development on Wedgwood Drive to learn about the risks of entering a building site.

The youngsters, who were aged between nine and 10 and wore protective clothing on the visit, also got an insight into the house building process as a whole and were shown how new homes at the development were constructed.

Head Teacher Mandy Clarey said,

“We had a great time visiting Wedgwood Park and it was extremely useful for the children to understand what happens on a site like this. You never know, we might have some budding builders on our hands now!”

Local MP Rob Flello, who was attending the site for a visit at the same time as the pupils, said,

“Children should be made aware that building sites are dangerous places, and it was good of David Wilson Homes to teach them this while showing us around their impressive new development.”

Wedgwood Park is an impressive new development built on the landmark Wedgwood Estate, offering a range of bespoke homes carefully designed to complement the vernacular and history of their surroundings. The development is split into three distinct character areas, Lakeside, The Oaks and The Village and is within walking distance of the picturesque village of Barlaston.
