This month the Stay Safe programme will be taught to all the children in our school. This is a primary school based approach to the prevention of child abuse. The aim of the programme is to reduce vulnerability to child abuse and bullying through the provision of a personal safety education programme for children at primary school level.
The programme seeks to enhance children’s self-protective skills by participation in lessons on safe and unsafe situations, bullying, inappropriate touch, secrets, telling and stranger danger.
Each night your child will bring home some topic based work for you to discuss and sign. This keeps you informed of the content of the programme as well as providing opportunities for talk and discussion around keeping safe.
