Stay Safe is a personal safety skills programme which is taught in primary schools from Junior Infants through to 6th class. The programme seeks to enhance children’s self-protective skills by participation in lessons on safe and unsafe situations, bullying, inappropriate touch, secrets, telling and stranger danger. Stay Safe is currently being updated and we are looking for feedback from parents about the Stay Safe and any changes they would like to see in a revised programme.

The Stay Safe lessons can be viewed online at: http://www.staysafe.ie/teachers_dlssp.htmt
