Safeguarding Curriculum for Pupils and Whole School Community

We teach our pupils about safeguarding so they know how to keep themselves safe and reduce risks.

From Reception to Year 6, pupils learn about safeguarding including online safety, stranger danger and healthy relationships, road and fire safety and first aid. These messages are embedded throughout our curriculum.
