The Stay Safe Programme

Children are taught the Stay Safe Programme in January and February.

In accordance with our child protection policy and the Department's Child Protection Procedures  pupils in Scoil Mhichil participate in the Stay Safe Programme. The aim of the Stay Safe programme is to teach children personal safety skills so they can look after themselves in situations which could be upsetting or dangerous. It deals initially with common situations which most children will experience at some stage or other, eg getting lost or being bullied. The programme also teaches children the safety skills necessary to protect themselves from physical or sexual abuse and emphasises the importance of telling a trusted adult about any problems they have.

To find out more about the programme please visit or view the parents' guide PDFs/Parents/Stay-Safe-Parents-Guide.pdf. Parents can also familiarise themselves with the content of the Stay Safe lessons at
