Our new and exciting ‘Mini Police Team’ have now began their training schedule. Mini Police is an exciting new programme, where children from Year 5 and 6 will work alongside Members of Staff from Durham Constabulary, DAAC, our Neighbourhood Police Team, and all of our staff and pupils in school.
As part of this role, children will; develop a practical understanding of policing, support community and policing priorities, develop self-esteem and confidence to encourage personal development and consideration for others, as well as participating in community activities and developing citizenship principles.
The members of this group will meet with important visitors to our school, and will liaise and feedback to Pupils, Staff and Governors about some of the tasks they participate in.
The programme begins with educational sessions where our pupils take part in lessons based on current community and policing priorities, e.g. anti-social behaviour, internet safety, bullying, environment, road safety, water safety and crime. The group will also be involved in a school assembly and community event, as well as creating and managing their own noticeboard.
Our Phase 2 and 3 Playground buddies are now trained and ready to take on their new roles.
They each play a vital role during break times, both outside on the playground and inside school.
Their Mission is to:
· Encourage children to take responsibility
· Encourage children to form a variety of friendships with older and younger pupils
· Encourage participation of games and activities
· Encourage shy children to join in with others
· To look out for and look after other children, who may be lonely or need company.
· Alert staff when there are problems
