Blackburn students get streetwise about safety

More than 700 students from schools across Blackburn with Darwen have been learning what it takes to get ‘streetwise’.

The ‘Operation Streetwise’ safety event teaches Year 6 children how to deal with dangerous situations and stay safe.

Agencies involved in delivering interactive workshops included Lancashire Police (antisocial behaviour), Lancashire Fire & Rescue (water and road safety), British Red Cross (First Aid), British Transport Police (railway safety) and Witton Park Academy (e-safety).

The event took place at Witton Park Academy in Blackburn from 27 June to 1st July.



Our mission is to deliver memorable, practical and impactful safety events to every child in the UK so that they can make informed choices when they are faced with danger, and embrace greater independence, health and wellbeing in later life
