Stay Safe Plan
The Stay Safe Programme is a personal safety skills programme for primary school children. The aim of the programme is to reduce vulnerability to child abuse and bullying through the provision of personal safety education for children. It is developmentally structured to enable teachers to deliver and abuse prevention education that addresses personal safety issues such as physical, emotional and sexual abuse as well as bullying and stranger danger.
In the Stay Safe Programme children will learn:
• About feelings: To recognise the importance of feelings, how to express them appropriately and in particular to recognise unsafe feelings.
• About Friendship: Making and keeping friends and the value of friendship
• About Bullying; What bullying is; strategies for dealing with bullying behaviour, and that it is never acceptable to bully others
• The importance of building confidence and self-esteem
• How to identify or deal with inappropriate or unsafe touch
• That it is ok to say “no” to an adult ina situation whwere they feel unsafe, threatened or frightened
• To identify trusted adults whom they should tell if they are feeling threatened, frightened, worried or unsafe in anyway.
• To understand how someone might bribe, trick or threaten them to keep a secret
• It is never their fault if they are victimised or abused
• That they should never go anywhere with or take anything from a stranger
• Appropriate language for telling

All primary school are required to fully implement the Stay Safe programme (DES 65/2011) within the context of the Social Personal Health Education curriculum.

The implementation of the Stay Safe programme will be acollaborative process involving parents, teachers and the wider school community taking a coordinated approach to child protection and child abuse prevention through safety skills education.
Rational
Child abuse has no boundaries. It occurs at every socio-economic level, crosses ethnic and cultural lines, and is found within all religions and at all levels of education.
Aim
Aswell as reducing children’s vulnerability to abuse, the Stay Safe programme aims to increase well being and resilience by giving children knowledge, skills and strategies in an age appropriate manner, using developmentally structured lessons and resources to empower them.
