The Stay Safe Programme is a safety skills curriculum, which was introduced into Irish schools a number of years ago. The aim of the programme is to teach children personal safety skills so they can look after themselves in situations, which could be upsetting and dangerous. It deals initially with common situations, which most children will experience at some stage or other, e.g. getting lost or being bullied. The programme also teaches children the safety skills necessary to protect themselves from physical or sexual abuse. Children will be taught to tell a trusted adult about any problems they may have. The programme starts in Senior Infants and continues to Sixth Class.
Our teachers have taken part in a special training course to prepare them to teach this subject.
Co-operation between parents and teachers is essential to the success of this programme. Should you require additional information you may examine the full programme at the school and any queries you may have will be answer
