Crucial Crew is a personal safety educational programme delivered to Key Stage 2 pupils in Year 6 of primary school (10 and 11-year-olds) at the Lifewise Centre in Rotherham.

The programme has been running since 2005 in conjunction with South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue and in partnership with Local Authorities, First Buses, Her Majesty’s Court Service (HMCS), NHS Trusts and the Safe@Last charity.

Every primary school in South Yorkshire is invited to spend the day at the Lifewise Centre on the set, which is used to work through a series of real-life scenarios related to personal safety in a interactive and exciting way.

The scenarios cover issues such as arson, hoax calls, road safety, fire safety, travel safety, Internet safety, and antisocial behaviour.
