EAGLE-EYED pupils at Crosland Moor Junior School have spotted an error missed by sign- makers.
Children on their way to the Dryclough Road school noticed that a new sign read Crossland Moor, instead of Crosland Moor.
The offending sign is at the bottom of Blackmoorfoot Road, near the Griffin pub at Thorton Lodge.
It is just 12ft from another sign with the correct spelling of Crosland Moor on it.
But Kirklees Council workers putting the sign up did not spot the inconsistency.
The school's head teacher, Tina Blackaby, said: "There is always a lot of criticism and claims that children can't read and spell as well as they used to.
"Yet they have spotted that the council has spent money on an incorrect sign.
"Even if the error wasn't spotted while the sign was made you'd think they would have seen it while putting the sign up - especially when another one close by reads differently," Ms Blackaby added.
"We've laughed and joked about it."
It is not the first time the council has been embarrassed by a mistake on road signs.
Two months ago signs appeared in Firth Street and Wakefield Road at Aspley, warning of roadworks at Shaw Hill, instead of Shore Head.
Kirklees was unable to provide a comment on the latest spelling mistake.
