The primary purpose of the KIDSAFE children's programme is to equip our children with effective skills to keep themselves safe from the various forms of child abuse without shattering their innocence.
The children's programme is delivered in the classroom with active participation from children and class teachers. The course material is age appropriate with key messages being delivered through a variety of media including song, rhyme and action, puppetry, group discussion, games and worksheets.
During the programme the children cover a range of topics including, their own feelings (happy/sad), respecting and valuing their own bodies, bull
Children devise strategies (as a group and as individuals) for keeping themselves safe. Strategies include the confidence and ability to say ‘NO’ to anything that makes them feel uncomfortable, and children identify their own support network of trusted adults that they can turn to if they are scared or worried about anything.
Mrs. Griffiths is our Kidsafe Tutor and has received extensive training in how to deliver the full Kidsafe programme plus Cyber Bullying. The Kidsafe programme is delivered throughout school to all the children.
St James’ CE Junior School is a registered Kidsafe School which shows our commitment to child protection and safeguarding.
