KidSafe is a program which specialises in child protection/safeguarding at an age appropriate level. The aim of KidSafe is to educate and empower children and with help of their puppet, KS, it allows children to take an active role in the sessions.
The sessions encourage children to feel empowered to speak out to a trusted grown up about any challenges they are facing.
There are six sessions in total:
-Building trust and feelings
-Bullying (saying no) and trusted adults
-Computer/internet safety-age ratings
-Keeping private places safe and rules
- Parent/carers arguing
- A full course recap to reinforce the KidSafe message.
Prior to delivering the sessions, a letter is sent out to all parents/carers to invite parents/carers into school to speak to one of the trained members of staff about the content and delivery of the sessions and to view the resources.
