Crucial Crew started twenty years ago as a way of helping young children aged between 9 and 11 to understand the dangers of everyday life.
During a morning or an afternoon session, they participate in a series of ten scenarios that show them how to be safe in a variety of situations.
So far, around 13,000 local youngsters have gained valuable experience with Sudbury Crucial Crew.
- "Gives children first hand experience and knowledge they require in difficult situations.....more valuable than anything we could teach in the classroom."
- "The active aspect of Crucial Crew is what makes it so unique, memorable and therefore successful.....Crucial Crew provides access to resources we would not be able to have normally."
- "The scenarios provide a safe environment to enable the children to consider their actions in situations that would affect their personal safety .... An opportunity to learn valuable life skills."
- "An excellent and stimulating experience to help our pupils learn' .... Thank you for all your hard work in putting the event on for our children."
We were delighted to receive a large number of 'Thank You' letters from some of the youngsters that took part in the 2019 Crucial Crew and three are available to read via the following links :Letter-1 Pot Kiln School.pdf Letter-2 Pot Kiln School.pdf Letter from St. Mary's School.pdf
