For the fourth year we are excited to be part of the Thames Valley Police 'Mini Police' project. This is a national scheme that allows a number of year 5 and year 6 children to participate in community based activities with a policing theme.
This year our PCSO Link Officer is PCSO Morgan Whiting.
In late 2021 we will be visited in school by the Thames Valley Police dog section and on Sunday 7th November we will be setting our alarm clocks early to help out at the Reading Half marathon.
Following the recent application process we are pleased to introduce our Mini Police recruits for this year.
Reading Half Marathon
On Sunday 7th November 2021 13 Katesgrove School Mini Police joined Mini Police from Park Lane Primary to help at the Reading Half Marathon.
The children started preparing the 'finishing chute' area of the course from 07:30hrs and then gave out over 10,000 finishers medals, bottles of water, foils and finishers gift bags.
The last runner completed the Course at around 14:00hrs and before the Mini Police went home, they picked up hundreds of empty cardboard boxes and tidied the area where they had been working.
The children were helped by our TVP PCSO, PCSO Morgan Whiting and our Teachers Miss Bernardes and Miss Adamska.
Next year the Half Marathon returns to its normal date of March.
