Protective Behaviours Curriculum
We use the Warwickshire recommended 'Taking Care' resources to teach children about how to keep themselves safe from abuse and harm. We use this program once a year with all children from Nursery up to Year 6.
There are two themes in Protective Behaviours:
- We all have the right to feel safe all the time
- We can talk with someone about anything, even it it feels awful or small
You will find a guide to the program for parents and carers here, along with other useful information:
We teach children how to stay safe online through our Computing curriculum, where there are specific unit of work which focus on developing children's digital literacy.
Online safety is also a key part of the schools overall 'safeguarding' agenda, so we build this into assemblies, PSHCE lessons as well as picking up relevant issues as they arise on a day to day basis.
