The Stay Safe Programme is a personal safety skills programme for primary schools – both mainstream and special. 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…
1. To identify for themselves unsafe or upsetting situations
2. Simple rules to help them avoid abuse
3. To respect and value the rights of others
4. The language and skills they require to seek help.
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.
In St Declan’s N.S we teach Stay Safe every second school year in the second term. We are teaching the Stay Safe Programme to all classes this January and February 2017.
