Junior PCSOs is a leadership initiative developed by West Midlands Police and Neighbourhood Teams. The aim of the scheme is to empower school to tackle and educate in the issues of parking, bullying and litter around their school sites. It is also to raise awareness of pupils, parents and drivers of the dangers that exist and to work together to ensure safer environments for us all.
Pupils from year 5 applied for the role of Junior PCSO and 10 pupils, with excellent behaviour, attendance and attitude towards work were chosen to be our first PCSOs. The group have completed their training with our local PCSO Nikki Yates. They will continue in the role for the rest of the academic year and will then be involved in training new PCSOs next year.
