Year 5 Crucial Crew Trip

On the morning of Thursday 9th February, Year 5 will be visiting the Formby Professional Development Centre for an event named ‘Crucial Crew’. Crucial Crew is a multi-agency annual event designed to teach children about personal safety and how to deal with emergencies.


Crucial Crew is noisy, fast-paced and completely different from the way we learn in school, and it has proven to have an impact on the children, who value it as a true ‘lesson for life.’ It supports the PSHE (Personal, Social, Health & Economic) curriculum, the citizenship curriculum and also the ‘Healthy Schools’ programme.


Children should arrive at St. John’s at the normal time on the morning of the 9th. We will return towards the end of the morning, and as such, there will be no need to deviate from normal arrangements. Swimming will be on as normal in the afternoon.
