Last week (Thursday 7 November) PC Keith Parkes was invited to the Jubilee LEAD Academy School to join pupils for school dinner.

We worked with the school to change the perception that some children have towards the police. By meeting the pupils, sitting down and talking to them it created a friendly and approachable view of the police.

Children from the school asked some fantastic questions about policing and what PC Parkes gets up to on a day to day basis.

The school were extremely welcoming and Keith was able to engage with the wide range of pupils from the school. His visit certainly went down a treat!

Keith enjoyed a delicious meal with a group of pupils and the school even made a caramel tart for PC Parkes to take back to the station.

PC Parkes said: “It was a great opportunity to visit the school and be able to talk about policing with the children. “We are dedicated to working with schools, like Jubilee LEAD Academy, to develop a positive relationship with the pupils so that we can form positive interactions in the future.

“After answering lots of questions from both pupils and teachers we enjoyed a tasty meal and it was back out on response.”

Amelia Jones-Southall a pupil at Jubilee LEAD Academy said: “It was great to have PC Parkes join us for dinner. He talked about his equipment and what he does as part of his job. I really enjoyed asking him questions and finding facts out about the police.”
