As a follow up to their Year 7 safety Focus Day in July earlier in the year Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service (HFRS) visited to run hard hitting sessions with the Year 8 PDL classes today. The pupils learned how well over half their call outs are for Road Traffic Collisions and discussed the possible distractions that can lead to such tragic outcomes (the distraction of mobile phones being a leading one). Gary Sloan of HFRS also brought in the car wreck of a real incident for pupils to realise how these events are real and happening now. Parents should expect to pestered by their Springfield children if they become distracted behind the wheel. We would like everyone in our extended community to be well informed and stay safe.
