Children in Great Longstone and Pilsley are now feeling clued up on staying safe when out and about, after a visit from their local Safer Neighbourhood officer.

PCSO Ian Phipps from the Tideswell Safer Neighbourhood Team visited Longstone Primary School on Wednesday, March 4 and Pilsley C of E Primary School on Thursday, March 5, to chat to pupils about Stranger Danger.

He spoke to students from all year groups about the importance of telling an adult where they are going, who they are with and when they will be back.

He also highlighted the importance of saying no to strangers and telling an adult if they see anything suspicious.

PSCO Phipps said: “Visiting youngsters in local schools is a great way for us to get important messages across about staying safe when out and about.

“It is really important for us to encourage children of all ages to think about their safety and to teach them about the work we do to help keep their communities safe.”
