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 (a puppet), games, singing and worksheets.
The programme consists of 5 separate sessions:
Session One - Keeping Safe
Trust - Feelings (good/bad)
Session Two - Yukky Feelings - feeling sad, scared or worried
Session Three - Bullying (what it means and how to stop it)
Using your voice (to say 'NO'in uncomfortable situations) and How to identify trusted grown-ups
Session Four - Keeping your private places safe, rules for keeping yourself safe and keeping secrets (good/bad)
Session Five - keeping safe online, watching TV and playing video games
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 Bethwaite and Mrs Richardson
