Junior Citizen Week

Every year, we run a Junior Citizen Week for Year 6 pupils from local schools. Around 1,000 pupils from over 30 schools attend to find out about keeping safe and how to be a good Junior Citizen.

Take part in Junior Citizen Week 2021

This year we are unable to run the event in person and so have decided to run a virtual ‘event’ and invite all schools to use the resources below for classroom discussions by the end of June 2021.

We'd love to see what you get up to: please send any photos and details of your activity to communitysafety@horsham.gov.uk as we would love to include them in a press release.

Plus! Enter our 2021 competition

Participating schools are encouraged to create a safety related project or initiative for their school and to submit that idea to our Community Safety Team. The best ideas will win a small monetary prize to be used towards the cost of implementing their ideas.

Please send details of your project or initiative (including relevant costs) to communitysafety@horsham.gov.uk by 30 June 2021.

We hope you enjoy running your virtual Junior Citizen event and look forward to receiving your entry.
