How To Use
The Mini-Policing scheme is a fantastic series of lessons designed to educate Year 5 and 6 children about the police and their role. The sessions could be delivered by a police representative or by the class teacher. This session focuses on road safety, sharing important information with the children about how to behave safely near roads. This is important as the children in this age range will be beginning to walk to and from school alone or with friends and need to be particularly aware of the dangers around them.
