November and December are Stay Safe months in Ashbourne ETNS.
The Stay Safe Programme is a personal safety skills programme for primary schools.
The programme develops children’s ability to recognise, resist and report risk situations or abusive encounters by teaching children…
- To identify for themselves unsafe or upsetting situations
- Simple rules to help them avoid abuse
- To respect and value the rights of others
- 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.
