David Wilson Homes has donated a range of Covid-19 safety products to Kibworth Primary School in Kibworth to enhance the welfare of its pupils learning safely in school amidst the pandemic.
The leading developer provided five contactless hand sanitiser dispensers and a variety of social distancing floor stickers to the school on Hillcrest Avenue to help its staff members and pupils stay safe whilst the pandemic persists.
David Wilson Homes is striving to ensure the pupils can remain in school following several lockdowns whilst the Covid-19 vaccination rollout takes place and a route out of the pandemic is underway.
Gilly Paterson, Headteacher at Kibworth Primary School, said: “We are delighted to receive these safety products from David Wilson Homes. It is great to be working in partnership with the developer to put in place additional hand cleansing stations around school. This will enable us to open up areas of the school which the children have not had access to for a long time including The Peace Garden and Allotment.”
David Wilson Homes’ donated hand sanitiser dispensers will be wall-mounted, which allows the school to choose the areas to install them, whilst an additional five-litre bottle of sanitiser was also supplied to the school for extended use.
The floor stickers are designed to encourage the pupils to observe the two-metre distance whilst walking around the school.
In donating the Covid-19 safety products, the housebuilder has formed a partnership with the school in close proximity of its development, David Wilson Homes at Kibworth, on Fleckney Road.
John Reddington, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: “Now all pupils are continuing their education with their teachers and classmates in person, we wanted to ensure they’re able to enjoy the rest of the term together and we hope our donation will support Kibworth Primary School in contributing to a comfortable environment for its staff and pupils.
“In addition to the school’s own safeguarding measures, our hand sanitiser dispensers and social distancing floor stickers aim to provide welcome support in what still proves to be a testing time for everyone.”
