We are delighted to have received the following letter from Timothy Littlehales of West Midlands Police regarding his visit to year 6 on Tuesday. Well done year 6, as Tim says you are a credit to our school and we are extremely proud of you!!
“Just a further note from my visit yesterday. What a pleasure it was to deliver the input to year 6 students. The behaviour was impeccable and the two way dialogue between themselves and myself was great. When we were speaking about the importance of community and what makes a good community and what can make a dangerous community they all had their hands up waiting to give me the answer.
We then moved onto knife crime and their knowledge that they had was very good and the awareness of knife crime incidents on the news and media was excellent. Even when I went on to talk about Joint Enterprise they were aware that they could all be in trouble for a particular offence and not just the person who committed the offence.
When I went on to talk about who can help in the community they were all coming out with Teachers/school, parents and family members, police, good neighbours etc but one young man said WHG ( Walsall Housing Group ) who helped his family to get a house, which was great as social housing organisations are also embedded in local communities and offer help and support and a raft of other initiatives.
If the rest of the students in the surrounding schools around Pelsall, Rushall and Aldridge are anything to go by your year 6 students then I do feel those locations will be in safe hands for the future.
What a credit to your school.
