Judge Rinder visit to Forest Preparatory School brings learning to life

Posted on: 20 Jan 2017

Pupils at Forest Preparatory School in Altrincham were visited by TV celebrity Judge Rinder earlier this week.

The TV judge, who competed in the 2016 series of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, visited the School on Monday January 16.

During his visit, he took part in a mock trial in Year 3 to show the children how the legal system works.

Deputy Headteacher, Graeme Booth, said, “As part of their PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) lessons, Year 3 have been learning that we are a democracy and everyone has rights as citizens of the UK.”

He added: “Taking part in the mock trial with Judge Rinder was a fantastic opportunity for the children to meet a real life judge and put their learning into practice. I’m sure it’ll be a day they remember for a very long time!”

The visit was organised by the School’s Year 3 class teacher, Mrs Eley, who presented Judge Rinder with a ‘scenerio’ based on a consumer purchasing a faulty electrical product.

Mrs Eley said, “We were delighted that Judge Rinder could take time out of his busy schedule to visit us and teach the children more about the legal justice system.”

She added: “After the mock trial, he took part in a question and answer session and was very impressed with the children.”

Robert Rinder is a criminal barrister who shot to fame with daytime reality court show Judge Rinder in 2014. In his show, he oversees a variety of civil cases, such as disputes over basic consumer issues, business, personal, and neighbourhood disputes, and allegations of negligence.

Mrs Eley added: “We wish Judge Rinder all the best in his future career and on behalf of all the staff and pupils would like to thank him for coming in!”
