Sutton primary school children shout about stranger danger
School children were encouraged to shout at the tops of their voices for a change as police taught them about stranger danger.
Officers visited the reception class at Westbourne Primary School last week to teach youngsters what to do if they are approached by a stranger.
The children were taught to shout the words 'help' and 'stranger' and demonstrated their new skills in the classroom having warmed-up their vocal cords up by making nee-naw siren noises.
They were told the best thing to do if they are approached by someone they do not know is to yell, run and tell an adult they do know what has happened.
The message was delivered by PCSO Colin Allen, who dressed in a blue hoodie, sunglasses and a cap and was armed with a bag of sweets as he posed as a stranger, Sergeant Kathy Morteo, and PCs Lud O'Brien and Mark Sullivan.
Sgt Morteo said: "It got very noisy in the confined space of the classroom but it got the point across about the importance of yelling out if approached by a stranger."
A teacher at the Collingwood Road school called the session "valuable and positive".
