Children at King’s Ely got the chance to try on police hats and sound the siren of a police car when two community officers dropped in to the school to discuss ways of staying safe.

The Cambridgeshire officers urged the reception class youngsters to ensure they are always remain in sight of a family member or relative, to identify people who could help them such as a police officer  and to say in a loud voice ‘You’re not my Mummy/Daddy’ if approached by a stranger.

They also got to wear high-vis jackets and see how it feels to sit behind the wheel of a police car at the safety workshop in the school garden.

Interim Head of King’s Ely Acremont, Celia Etchegoyen, said: “The children were thrilled to meet the Police Community Support Officers and have the opportunity of looking inside the police car, pressing the siren and trying on the high-vis jackets. Everyone had such a wonderful day.”
