Yr6 - Crucial Crew Experience

Year 6 Experience Crucial Crew

Crucial Crew is a multi-agency safety initiative aimed at children 10 – 11 years old. It consists of a number of manned scenarios which the children visit in small groups. These scenarios all deal with a different aspect of safety and are based on the idea that children learn best by doing.

Children, as part of a group, were asked to ‘hazard spot’ and solve a number of safety problems. They were encouraged to seek help from the appropriate authorities, who were on stand by and guided on how to do this.

Crucial Crew was a fun and exciting event but the serious messages about personal safety and dealing with emergencies are very strongly conveyed.

Each group of children was allocated a marshal to accompany them as they go around the scenarios. The marshal ensured that the children experienced all the scenarios.

The following agencies participated in or support Crucial Crew in Stockton on Tees:
