Safeguarding

This term our safeguarding theme is Keeping safe outside of school.

The focus for our Safeguarding assemblies is keeping safe outside of school which covers among other things road safety, stranger danger and what to do if you get lost. Although it is highly unlikely that children will be out and about by themselves, it is still important to start educating children on how to stay safe. Educating children from an early age also helps develop their confidence and awareness.
