Crucial Crew

Crucial Crew is an interactive, engaging, but also fun, personal safety educational provision managed by South Yorkshire Police, but delivered in collaboration with South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue and South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership.


The educational provision is a free offer to all mainstream primary schools, Special Educational Needs schools at Pupil Referral Units and Learning Centres in South Yorkshire.


The mainstream provision is offered to Year 6 pupils, where they take part in eight different scenarios during the day to learn how to keep themselves safe whether in the home or outside and the consequences of committing crime.


The Special Educational Needs provision is tailored to sessions that address personal safety to assist in independent living and in school activities.  The sessions help reinforce safety messages in school by taking part in interactive activities and physically demonstrating their knowledge in a realistic setting.

Sessions are offered on a basis of a half day or full day, based on need, and are open to Y6 primary pupils until sixth form.


The Pupil Referral Unit and Learning Centre provision is again tailored to suit the audience and the personal safety messages that would be beneficial to the pupils.  This provision is offered on a half day basis and covers 5 valuable scenarios for Y6 primary pupils until Y11 secondary school age pupils.
