Safeguarding

At Hollybrook Juniors we believe it is really important to teach how to keep themselves and others safe and forms a key part of our curriculum. The children regularly take part in learning through assemblies and classroom teaching which focuses on how to keep safe in different situations. Some of the areas we cover in our curriculum are:

  • E-safety
  • Awareness of bullying and peer on peer abuse
  • How to keep safe with adults children do not know- ‘Clever Never Goes’ programme
  • How to keep our body and minds healthy
  • How to keep safe in emergency situations such as when there is a fire
  • NSPCC PANTS (The Underwear Rule)

We teach these through many different ways in our curriculum:

  • Assemblies
  • Direct teaching
  • Philosophy for Children
  • Healthy school days
  • Daily mile and mindfulness through the Healthy School’s award
  • Topics such as ‘People Who Help Us’, ‘Cyber Safety’- introducing the new Reception to ‘safe’ people in school
  • Local community representatives to support the curriculum such as Community Police, Fire Safety etc
  • Links with NSPCC

As a school, we work closely with parents so they can be supported to follow up messages given in school about keeping safe with their children. Below are some links to resources and information for parents:
