Safer Neighbourhood officer chats to Eyam pupils about the importance of road safety
An officer from Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Team headed back to class to chat to pupils around issues of staying safe, road safety and stranger danger.
PCSO Anthony Boswell took on the role as a guest speaker at Eyam Primary School on Thursday, January 23 to chat to the children as part of their class topic around ‘People who help us’.
PCSO Boswell spoke to the twenty children from reception and class one, aged between 4 and 6-years-old, about the role of the police and how they work to keep the communities safe.
He said: “School visits are a fantastic way for us to engage with the children from an early age and educate them about staying safe and the rights and wrongs.
“It is really important that the kids get to know their Safer Neighbourhood team and the role that we play in the community.
“The children seemed to really enjoy the morning and we had lots of input from them about crossing the road safely and the importance of staying close to parents when out and about.”
Anthony Boswell also visited Bradwell Pre-School on Tuesday, January 14, to chat to the young children aged between 2 and 3-year-olds, about stranger danger.
To speak to the Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Team call 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
