Dronfield officer heads back to class to host Stay Safe talks

Posted on 12th June 2015

An officer from the Dronfield Safer Neighbourhood Team has been heading back to class to chat to pupils ahead of their move to secondary schools later this year.

PC Sally Horner has been visiting schools in the community to chat to Year 6 pupils about staying safe when out and about.

During the Stay Safe talk, a number of topics were covered such as road safety when out in groups, staying safe online, and how to avoid being drawn in to peer pressure.

So far this term, Sally has visited schools in Dronfield, Stonelow, Unstone, Barlow and Homesdale.

She said: "Visits to schools such as this are a fantastic way for the children to get to know me, and vice versa, so that when they see me out on the beat in later life, they can stop and say hello.

"During the talk, we spoke about issues such as walking to secondary school and being aware of road hazards whilst in a group, the consequences of a criminal record should they ever find themselves in trouble and staying safe online."

Over the next few weeks, PC Horner is set to visit Cutthorpe Primary School, Gorseybrigg Primary School, Penny Acres Primary School and St Andrews Primary School.
