Crime and SafetyContact us at Crucial Crew


Crucial Crew is a national scheme that has been run by EFDC since 2007.  Every year EFDC invites year 6 pupils across the district to take part in scenario based workshops to raise awareness of the hurdles they may encounter in everyday life and provide information on how to keep themselves safe. Children aged between 10 and 11 years complete the course in small groups. Some of the scenarios workshops are:

  • Internet safety,
  • Fire safety,
  • Bullying,
  • Healthy living,
  • Road safety,
  • Healthy relationships,
  • Alcohol misuse,
  • Healthy eating and
  • Building site safety. 

The aim of Crucial Crew is to provide an interactive event that enables children to learn in a fun and stimulating environment about personal safety and health and wellbeing.  It is designed to help children to: -

  • Make healthy living choices
  • Accept responsibility for their own safety
  • Learn social responsibility
  • Make sensible decisions based on an acquired knowledge.
