Keeping Safe(Child Protection Curriculum)

All classes at Highbury Primary School participate in activities related to the mandatory Keeping Safe - Child Protection Curriculum throughout the year. Week 2 of each term has a school wide focus week with reference throughout the term to build on this learning

The Keeping Safe - Child Protection Curriculum from preschool to high school is based on two main things which are presented at different levels of learning through topics and activities of increasing complexity. These two themes are “we all have the right to be safe” and “we can help ourselves to be safe by talking to people we trust”.

The four main focus areas are:

  • The right to be safe
  • Relationships
  • Recognising and reporting abuse
  • Protective strategies

Information will be sent home to parents when this is a focus in their child’s class.
