Safeguarding Across the Curriculum

The following themes and topics are explored in depth progressively across the curriculum.  They have been chosen as focus areas as by deepening their knowledge and understanding of each of these areas, children will be able to keep themselves safe.

Common to all year groups:  handling tools and equipment safely, how to safely move PE equipment, water safety, movement around the school, safe movement around the school grounds and secrets – when things need to be shared.
