Crucial Crew Trip : Year 6



Dear Parents/Carers,


A number of schools across the County have been invited to take part in an event called ‘Crucial Crew’ at Inspire Ipswich. It is a nationwide project to increase safety awareness and could prove invaluable to your child. The event is organised, and run, by local emergency services including the Fire Brigade, Police and also the Environment Agency.


Children in Year 6 will be taking part in a number of activities that centre around safety in and around the home. They will learn how to respond safely and effectively to a number of different scenarios. Not only is the experience enjoyable for the children but is also extremely beneficial to them. Children will be watching film clips, for example near car accidents, and permission will be needed. Please let us know if your child has experienced any distressing incidents such as major fires/road accidents/deaths before the event that may upset them. Please fill in section 3 on the enclosed form if this is the case.


Crucial Crew takes place on Monday 10th June 2019 at Inspire. On this occasion we are not asking for any voluntary contribution. We will be leaving by coach at 8.15am. On that day your child will need to arrive at school at 8am, dressed in school uniform. We are due back at school by approximately 12pm so your child can follow their usual dinner routine.


Some of the scenarios during Crucial Crew may wish to use photography, or the local papers may wish to use photographs to publicise the event. Please indicate on the attached form if you do not want your child to be photographed.


Please complete the form overleaf and return 23rd May. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and speak to your child’s class teacher.


Thank you for your continued support.




Mr Johnson, Mrs Greggor and Mrs Till
