Crucial Crew is a nationwide initiative which was first launched in 2005. It aims to teach year 6 pupils about personal safety and encourages them to become role models for younger pupils in demon-strating safe behaviour. Every primary school in Stockton-on-Tees is invited to take part in the event.
The event included different scenarios throughout the afternoon, led by a range of agencies. Each session was focused on a specific area of personal safety.
The outcome is that pupils leave the event with an awareness of how to stay safe and also how to pass the message of personal safety on to the younger members of their school community.
