All classes will be taught the Stay Safe programme between May and June 2019. The Stay Safe programme is a mandatory personal safety skill programme for primary school. Its overall objective is to prevent child abuse, bullying and other forms of victimisation.
The programme develops children's ability to recognise, resist and report risk situations or abusive encounters by teaching children.....
The programme also informs parents and teachers about preventing bullying and child abuse, whilst seeking to create a greater public awareness about the problems children can and do experience.
The children are taught the content of the Stay Safe lessons in the classroom by their usual class teacher, and then discuss the lessons at home with their parents.
The lessons teach children about what to do if they're frightened or upset. One of the central messages children learn is that if they ever have a problem, they should tell an adult that they know and trust.
A booklet on the Stay Safe programme is available on the school website in the 'Parent's Section'
