Safety week a success at Sidmouth Primary School
children at Sidmouth Primary School were visited by emergency services when they took part in a ‘safety week’.
Youngsters were involved in a number of workshops and activities designed to help them know how to react safely in many situations.
The sessions included road safety, internet safety and first aid.
Children also worked with a number of professionals from the police, St John Ambulance and fire service.
Youngsters in reception to year three also enjoyed a road safety puppet show.
