Safer Neighbourhood officer heads back to class for Hathersage visit

Posted on 1st April 2015

Officers from the Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Team took a trip back to class to chat to youngsters about staying safe.

PCSO Anthony Boswell from the policing team visited Hathersage St Michael’s Primary School, on School Lane, for a chat around Stranger Danger.

The talk, which took place on Monday, March 23, saw Year Five pupils learning all about staying safe when out and about, particularly at large events, along with the importance of telling an adult where they are going, who they are with and when they will be back.

PCSO Boswell said: “Visiting local schools is a great way for us to speak to youngsters to get important messages across about staying safe when out in public.

“It is really important for us to encourage children to think about their safety, the safety of others, and to always let their parents and guardians know where they will be going.”

Class teacher Lindsey Garner said: “Once again this was a very good, interactive session led by PCSO Boswell, which put across a clear message at just the right level for our Year 5 class.

“Anthony promoted lots of good discussion with the children and we look forward to him coming back next term to work with small group of Year 6 children who missed out earlier in the year.”
