We are very pleased to let you know that six pupils from Sambar and Taruca classes have been elected to be part of the Belmont Mini Police team led by Mrs Harrison! They are very excited and proud to be wearing their uniforms and can't wait to get started in making a difference to our school and to our local community.
The aim of the Mini Police project is to encourage respect between all pupils by helping them to find solutions to day to day issues or conflicts within the school and to pass on advice and information on topics such as road safety and anti-bullying, through assemblies, leaflets or posters. It is also hoped that the project will help break down barriers between children and the Police so that children will develop the confidence to approach and trust the Police.
During the year they will meet regularly with Mrs Harrison and our local PCSO Pamela King to learn how to communicate with a wide range of people in different ways and learn more about the values of tolerance, perseverance and respect. They will also be given the opportunity to have a leading role in leading changes within our local area and will be encouraged to be role models for their peers.
