17th October 2022



Today officers from Lancashire Constabulary and Lancashire Fire & rescue have been into your child’s school as part our of bonfire and firework safety campaign.

The children from both Year 6 classes took part in a assembly where they have learnt about the dangers associated with firework misuse, anti-social behaviour and deliberate fire starting. In addition to this, they have also learnt about the legislation around fireworks, and other criminal offences.

Below are some points, the offices made to enhance the children's knowledge.

What are fireworks?

Fireworks are defined as: “A device containing gunpowder and other combustible chemicals which causes spectacular effects and explosions when ignited, used for display or in celebrations.”

Fireworks are separated into categories based on the level of risk they pose.

 Category 1 – Known as Indoor Fireworks

This category include sparklers. These can be used by children over the age of 5 if they are with an adult.

It is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to buy or have in their possession any firework that is not a category 1

Category 2 – Known as Garden fireworks

These are fireworks that adults can buy from a shop or supermarket for use in their own garden

Only adults should buy or touch fireworks – If someone tries to give you a firework say NO

Category 3 - larger fireworks referred to as      DISPLAY FIREWORKS

These may not be suitable for the average garden and usually require a minimum spectator distance of 25 meters.

*Remember – ALWAYS stand well back from bonfires and fireworks, and never go near a firework that has been lit.

Anyone who is caught carrying out or being involved with anti-social behavior such as misuse of fireworks, committing arson or obstructing an emergency service worker could:

  • Be arrested
  • Receive a Fixed penalty notice (fine)
  • Be reported for summons – and have to explain their actions and behaviour to a court

                  What effect does Anti-social behavior have on

Year 6 took part in Show Racism The Red Card this year. They all wore red showing their support.

Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) is the UK’s leading anti-racism educational charity. It  was established in January 1996, thanks in part to a donation by then Newcastle United goalkeeper Shaka Hislop.


In 1990s Newcastle, Shaka was at a petrol station near St James Park when he was confronted with a group of young people shouting racist abuse at him. After one of the group realised that they had been shouting at Shaka Hislop, the Newcastle United football player, they  came over to ask for an  autograph. It was from this experience that Shaka realised he could harness his status as a professional player to make a difference. Coupled with the power of football and his status as a role model, Shaka thought education could be an effective strategy in challenging racism in society.

A couple of PCSO and a Police Officer from Lancashire Police’s came into school today to talk to the Year 6 children about knife crime. 'Choose Life, Not the Knife' was devised to reduce any fears pupils had regarding knife crime. They talked about the legalities regarding carrying and buying knives, the immediate and future consequences of carrying a knife and the devastation caused by knife crime. 

The children listened carefully to the adults who outlined that ‘Lancashire is a safe place to live’ and described the different ways we can keep it that way.  Pupils listened to them as they talked about the police’s response to knife crime and the steps pupils can take if they are concerned, about themselves, friends or family members.

We would like to thank the Lancashire Police Officer and the PCSO's for coming into school and highlighting the issues around knife crime.
