On 12.01.17 years 5 & 6 enjoyed our annual ‘Safeguarding Day‘ this event is organised with several agencies who come into school and talk the children about a variety of subjects to help keep them safe now and for their transition into secondary schools.
The Police talked to the children about the latest news to do with mobile phones, social media and what they should do if they get sent inappropriate messages or images. The police showed them what happens when someone gets arrested and gave them lots of tips of how to keep safe on the streets.
DECCA (Drug Education Counselling Confidential Advice Service) talked to the children and introduced them to some key words and phrases which will help them keep safe and informed for their later school years.
The ASBO Team from Sandwell Council talked to the children about being good citizens and neighbours and talked to them about local activities in their area, the implications of anti social behaviour and the effect on other people and the environment.
REWIND – Rewind UK opposes racism by debunking the myths, lies and stereotypes that fuel racist ideologies, behaviours and attitudes. They have initiated and participated in a variety of projects, from preventative work in schools with vulnerable youths to interventions with school pupils.
The feedback from children and staff deemed the day ‘brilliant’ and we look forward to welcoming them back next year and hope the children learnt some valuable life lessons which will help them as they become independent young adults.
