Making learning irresistible

Mini Police at St Patrick's

 

The Mini Police project within Cumbria Constabulary is a fun and interactive volunteering opportunity for our Year 5 children. We currently have 14 Mini Police officers in school. The Mini Police support the force priorities, through participation in community engagement events. Our children look forward to developing a confident voice through enjoyable experiences.

 

Children who become part of the Mini Police help to tackle local issues, as highlighted by their own communities.  By assisting the police service, they take ownership and put pride back into the community they live in. We work closely with our local P.C.S.O Sam Watson. 

 

   WHAT HAVE WE ACHIEVED?      

We are incredibly proud of our Mini Police at St Patrick's.

Not only do we have Kitty on our Mini Police Force; The Mini Police Officer of the Year 2019-2020
