Year 6 visited the Safety Zone event on Friday and were able to develop their sense of awareness of potential dangers and hazards that they are likely to encounter in their lives. The event, organised by the County Council, is designed to develop children's sense of responsibility and independence as they look forward to the rest of this year and their secondary school lives. Children visited stations hosted by the Police, Fire Service, Via and NCT amongst others at the National Watersports Centre. During short 15 minute sessions at each station, pupils had the opportunity to learn basic CPR, how to embark and disembark buses and trams safely and correctly, understand the importance of wearing a seatbelt, how to behave responsibly around electricity, understand the dangers in the home that can lead to fire as well as the potential pitfalls of social media if not used correctly. It was a fantastic morning and the children were a credit to the school learning skills and knowledge that are of a great benefit outside the classroom.
