Crucial Crew

OVER 1,100 year 6 pupils from Harlow have just completed a series of personal safety scenarios as part of the annual crucial crew event.

From Tuesday 13 March to Friday 23 March, 1,126 pupils from Harlow primary schools attended Harlow Crucial Crew to learn about personal and community safety and participate in a range of fun, interactive scenarios where they had the opportunity to practice making positive decisions in a safe, controlled environment.

Crucial crew supports children’s transition from primary to senior school at a time in their lives when they are likely to start going out and about in the community without adult supervision.

Harlow Council organised Crucial Crew and worked with Essex Police, Essex County Fire and Rescue Service, HTS, Safer Places, Sainsbury’s, Essex County Council and Anglian Community Enterprise to cover topics including drugs/gangs, fire safety, caring for the environment, healthy relationships, safety around Large Goods Vehicles, road and cycle safety and healthy lifestyles and nutrition.

In addition, the Council’s Community Safety Team provide a scenario to raise children’s awareness of the dangers of alcohol and the importance of not divulging personal information to adults they do not know.

Crucial Crew is funded by the Essex Police Fire and Crime Commissioner and organised by Harlow Council.
