Legal Eagles Visit Year 5

April 2, 2015

had a visit from a pair of ‘Legal Eagles’ so that they could learn about the Criminal Justice System in the UK.

Our visitors were experienced magistrates who gave us a fascinating insight into what happens if somebody is arrested and suspected of breaking the law.

The children had the opportunity to take part in a mock magistrate’s court trial, reach a verdict and pass sentence on an unfortunate law-breaker!

Year 5 were surprised to discover that the age of legal responsibility in this country is 10 years old!
