Kidsafe is currently being delivered to 5RL. Next week we will be look at session 4. 



Kidsafe UK is a registered charity (1105179) established in Cumbria. The purpose of the programme is to build children's confidence, self esteem and equip them with skills to keep themselves safe from various forms of abuse without shattering their innocence. The programme is age appropriate and delivered within the classroom by trained Kidsafe tutors, using KS (puppet), games, singing and worksheets. 

The programme consists of 5 separate sessions:


Session One - Keeping Safe 


 Feelings (good/bad)


Session Two - Bullying (what it means and how to stop it)

 Using your voice (to say 'NO'in uncomfortable situations)

 Identify Trusted grown-ups


Session Three - Keeping safe online

    Age ratings (games, DVDs & TV)


Session Four - Keeping your private places safe

  Rules for keeping yourself safe

  Keeping secrets (good/bad)


Session Five - What to do when parents/carers argue and/or split up



Each session includes a scenario involving KS in a situation that gives him yukky feelings. Children then work together with the tutors to come up with possible solutions or advice to help KS.


After each session children will take home a letter outlining what they have done in that day's session. 


Once the children have completed the five sessions they are presented with a certificate. Three months later children will have a sixth session to re-cap main points from all five sessions.  

Our Kidsafe tutors are Mrs Simpson and Miss Porter.
