How do we teach children to keep themselves safe?

How do we keep children safe?


At Cliftonville Primary and Pre-School, staff help keep children safe and well by:


  • helping them learn about their personal safety
  • being a trusted adult who children may turn to for help, and who will take them seriously
  • identifying when children may need help
  • understanding the steps that must be taken when there are concerns for children's safety and well-being


Our school helps keep children safe and well because:


  • we have a caring school ethos that helps children feel respected
  • we have staff who are available and accessible to provide help
  • safety is a priority and is specifically taught through the curriculum
  • children are provided with the knowledge, skills and values they need to choose and maintain a healthy lifestyle
  • children and their families are given access to information about child support services such as ChildLine and the NSPCC
