Woodpecker Hall Primary Academy was nominated to receive a pack by parent Natasha Hines, whose son Mason Baynes, age seven, was a former pupil at the school.

Altogether 308 schools have received useful packs stuffed with pens, rulers, notebooks, erasers and safety stickers for classes of up to 30 schoolchildren. UK Power Networks’ employees could receive packs for their children’s schools to support local communities, as the education system adapts to changes caused by the pandemic.

Mum, Natasha, who works in UK Power Networks’ connections team, said: “Providing individual stationery to support a safe return to school following a national lockdown is a great gesture. Stationery is essential for a child’s school day and knowing it is not shared, as before, is one less worry. 

“Mason thought it was so thoughtful and it means the school could save vital funds on other areas to keeping the school running. He is so grateful for the Safer Schools pack.”

Connie Dickie, employee engagement manager at UK Power Networks, said: “Supporting our employees and their communities has always been paramount at UK Power Networks. Providing these packs means that we have been able to show our appreciation for our employees and the incredible work schools, teachers, pupils and parents have done to adapt throughout the pandemic.”

Each pack contained enough supplies for a class of 30 children and the packs were quickly sent out, helping to make schools safer for over 10,000 schoolchildren.
