Students have been given an insight into how to deal with real incidents in school and at home.

A group of Year 8 pupils from John Spence Community High School visited the interactive centre SafetyWorks to learn how to react the incidents as well as learning important life skills, such as first aid.

The students spent time in different workshops including a police station learning about personal safety and anti-social behaviour; in a house learning about safety in the home and steps needed when discovering a fire, including a ‘real life’ 999 call; in a park to learn about basic first aid to help friends or members of the public; and internet safety discussing how to be safe and social websites and dealing with any cyber bullying.

A school spokesperson said: “The students had a thoroughly enjoyable time at SafetyWorks, learning lots of relevant and important facts and skills that can affect their everyday lives, in a fun, interactive and realistic way.”
