As part of our PSHE curriculum, we complete a unit at the start of the year on Protective Behaviours which builds upon their understanding of this area from previous years. Protective Behaviours is a practical down to earth approach to personal safety. This is achieved by helping the children to recognise and trust their intuitive feelings (Early Warning Signs) and to develop strategies for self-protection.
