Painted footprints

These blue and yellow footprints appeared on our local pavements a few months ago. It seems to be the same type of paint that is used for double-yellow lines.

I would assume they mark some kind of walking trail. They can be found on Richmond Hill and may lead towards Werneth Low but I've not yet found out any proper information about them.

I believe they're used to direct kids to locations where they can cross the street safely (i.e. with a lollipop lady/man or a controlled crossing).
