Beacon Primary Academy Safety Day
Beacon Primary Academy Safety Day

Police, ambulance and fire emergency services representatives along with the RNLI lifeboat and lifeguards attended a day of safety related learning at Beacon Primary Academy in Skegness.

The Embassy Swimming Pool staff provided a water safety session and the Skegness Academy e-safety, judo and first aid sessions.

A representative from Lincolnshire County Council’s Road Safety Team also offered guidance about how children can stay safe in the community.

The aim of the morning was to provide pupils with a ‘hands on’ learning experience giving them valuable information about how to stay safe in their community.

All aspects of ‘staying safe’ were covered during the session and pupils will now continue their learning in the classroom to ensure that they are fully prepared for the summer in the busy town of Skegness.

Principal Corinna Wright said: “This was a fantastic event and I would like to thank all of the visitors who came along to support us in making this an informative and interactive learning experience.

“The enthusiasm shown by the children, the visiting professionals and our Beacon staff team was brilliant and made the morning very memorable for our pupils.

“Providing information for children relating to their safety is essential and a very important part of the work that we do in our Academy on an ongoing basis.”

A pupil from the Academy said: “We had an awesome day! We got to go on a climbing wall, look in the Police CCTV van and we found out a lot of interesting information”.
