Some 250 children from seven primary schools came together at The Deepings School to learn essential skills in keeping safe.

 Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue ran a ‘stay safe’ workshop for Year 6 pupils from the Deepings area, supported by staff and students as part of the school’s transition activities for students joining in the autumn.
