Gwladys Street Mini Police

On Thursday 14th November 2019, Gwladys Street Mini Police and Merseyside Police completed an environmental clean up within the local area. The children also delivered home safety leaflets to local homes. Considering it was such a cold day, the children were wrapped up warm and worked extremely hard. Thank you to all involved.

Mini Police 2017-18:

On Friday 11th Jan 2019, some of our Mini Police were involved in Operation Handle. Here, our children visited local streeets near to Gwladys Street School and visited homes, working in partnership with Merseyside Police and local agencies. Members of the community were given leaflets and information in protecting their homes and crime prevention. Our Mini Police visited the Kitchen in the Community which was available for the locals to enjoy some hot and cold food and drinks. Here, the children enjoyed developing their cooking skills and made some great food to take home. Our Mini Police were involved in a community clean up, where skips were made available for locals to rid of any unwanted items. The gullies were also cleaned by Liverpool City Council in partnership with Merseyside Police and the local Councillors. Often, items involved in crime can be disposed of and the gullies were being targeted for this purpose. Thank you to all involved, our parent volunteers and our Mini Police who enjoyed helping within our local community.

On Friday 7th December 2018, our Mini Police alongside Officers from Walton Lane Police Station, worked in keeping our children safe outside of school on Gwladys Street. Each day, we are having issues with parking on zig zags and congestion. Our Mini Police and Officers spoke with those parking in an obstructive manner. A fixed penalty notice was issued resulting in a fine. Thank you to all our children, Officers and staff involved.

On a Friday 23rd November 2018, Gwladys Street School Mini Police visited Merseyside Police Headquarters. Here, our children met with Assistant Chief Constable Julie Cooke. The children were able to ask lots of different questions and discovered lots of information to help support them in their important roles. Our Mini Police enjoyed afternoon tea and had a really informative afternoon. Thank you to Gill Bell from the Community Engagement Team at Merseyside Police for her continued support.

Our Mini Police have begun their special role of playground Police, here at Gwladys Street School. Our children are helping others on the playground to ensure all children have a friend to play with and helping children as they enjoy lunchtime activities.

On Wednesday 14th November, Merseyside Police attended our school and delivered an assembly, alongside our Mini Police. The children delivered important messages as part of anti-bullying week. They spoke of the different types of bullying, how to look for signs of bullying and what to do if it ever happens. Well done to all our children who took part!

On Wednesday 27th June 2018, some of our Mini Police were involved in a Crime Prevention and Hate Crime event at Tesco, County Road. Here our children worked in partnership with Merseyside Police raising awareness within our local community. The children gave out information and spoke to members of the public regarding Hate Crime.

June 2018 - Local Speed Operation

As part of our Health and Well being week, some of our Mini Police attended Walton Lane Police Station where they were engaged in a local speed operation. Here, the children saw Officers check the speed of vehicles travelling down Walton Lane. 

Some drivers were spoken to by the Police, whilst others were spoken to by our Mini Police. The children set up a Mini Police Court inside the station and asked drivers a range of questions regarding their speed, including the implications of their actions and dangers on our roads.

Walton Lane has a maximum speed limit of 30mph. Some drivers believed it to be 40mph. 

Our Mini Police were providing safe messages to the public to drive safely and slowly near our school.

With special thanks to the Officers at Walton Lane for their help and support.

February 2018

On Monday 5th February was the start of Regional Hate Crime Awareness Week. Our Mini Police attended St Nicholas Church in the city centre. They watched moving performances from LIPA and 3 really powerful guest speakers who shared their experiences of hate crime. One of the key messages was, “I didn’t need to speak out as it didn’t affect me.” Any form of hate crime should be challenged, whether it is directly or indirectly targeted towards any person, regardless of religion, race, disability, gender. 

With special thanks to our Mini Police who represented our school, supporting the powerful message that Merseyside is no place for hate.

Mather Avenue Police Training Centre

On Tuesday 24th April, our Mini Police attended Mather Avenue Police Training Centre, where they visited the Mounted Section. 

Here, they learned the importance of the roles of the horses within Merseyside Police. They were able to feed and groom the horses and try on the different types of Police uniform. 

They met some of the horses who in fact walked alongside the winning horse at the recent Grand National!

Our Mini Police had a tour of the stables and discovered some of the horses were having a rest before their busy night shift at work. Some horses were going to keep our community safe by working at the Liverpool V Roma football game.

With special thanks to all who made our visit special.
