crucial crew

Children in Year 6 went to Eshton Grange where Crucial Crew was held.  

Crucial Crew is a multi-agency event organised through schools, by the police and supported by the fire service and is something we have been proactively engaged with for over twenty years,

The aim of this event is to raise awareness of locality and national safety issues to school children in Year 6 (aged 10-11). We undertake the experience with our partner school Settle Primary.

The event takes the form of a range of 20-minute interactive scenarios which cover a wide range of topics, each educating the students in a specific risk.

Each scenario includes the children having ‘hands on’ experience in what to do , for example, if they discover a fire in the home and how to make an emergency call.

The children will identify risks set up in each scenario and learn how to be more aware of the various dangers they may encounter in preparation for the greater independence they may receive when they move from a primary to secondary school setting.

Scenarios include:

  • Fire Safety
  • Water Safety
  • Heathy Child Team Awareness
  • Internet and Online Safety
  • IDAS (Independent Domestic Abuse Services) - family well being workshops
  • Drugs and Alcohol Awareness
  • Anti-social Behaviour
  • Farm Safety
  • Mental Health Awareness and Support
