Fen Rivers
Crucial Crew Visit: a multi-agency education project, led by Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service.  April 2023

Year 6 attended the Fire Station with other schools from the local area. Students were divided into small groups and mixed in with other schools. This was lovely!

Students enjoyed the following workshops:

  • Gas dangers 
  • Fire protective measures in our home
  • Coastguard protocol when at a public beach
  • Managing my emotions – breathing techniques for everyday
  • Police – keeping my personal information private
  • Evacuation planning in the event of an emergency
  • CPR and how to do this – practice

Our Year 6’s represented the school superbly and joined in with all activities. 

Fantastic day out for the whole school! April 2023

A thoroughly enjoyable production. Many of the students visited the Theatre for the first time ever! Fen Rivers represented the school and community brilliantly.
