With it being Safety Week at school, this Talk Time brings together lots of the learning that has taken place.
I can show different ways to stay safe including how to seek help.
Because safety covers so many areas, your discussions could centre around these forms of safety as well as any others that you know of:
- Online safety (e-safety)
- Fire safety
- Road safety
- Electrical safety
- Water safety
For each type of safety, talk about different settings and examples of when you might be faced with risks and how you’d safely deal with them. In each situation, it’s crucial you discuss the help you’d need if something goes wrong. Imagine that you’re in different places and with different people in each scenario. Perhaps you’re with family, friends or on your own. Are there any services that you can contact?
Here are some R2s to help you stay safe:
- Think before you act.
- Assess the risks. Is it safe?
- If something goes wrong, again, think before you act.
- Who can help you and how can you reach them?
