Safety Around the Home
An important aspect of safety includes how children can be safe at home. In our P.S.H.E curriculum and in assemblies, we teach about hazards in school - as well as those in our houses - and how to promote personal safety. This can include:
- Electrical dangers.
- Fire safety.
- Water safety.
- Safety around our homes and in the local area.
One of our mottos before the start of each half term break is: Stay safe! The children at Wyberton Primary Academy are reminded of this constantly and adults model good safety measures and discussions. We learn about when to call the emergency services and the support & help that they can offer.
We can call 999:
if there is a fire in a house and ask for the fire brigade
if someone is ill or injured and ask for an ambulance
if someone does something wrong, like causes a fight in your home or breaks into your house and ask for the police
The support we have from the fire service and the police really help us to know how we can keep safe.
Have a look at these videos below, aimed for EYFS/KS1 children, of how we can be safe at home:
Here are some links which take you to child-friendly websites to learn more about staying safe at home. There are some interactive activities, videos and lots of useful pieces of information to help.
