Protective Behaviours Curriculum

Taking Care -Protective Behaviours
"Protective Behaviours is a practical down to earth approach to personal safety. It is a process that encourages self-empowerment and brings with it the skills to raise self-esteem and to help avoid being victimised. This is achieved by helping individuals to recognise and trust their intuitive feelings (Early Warning Signs) and to develop
strategies for self-protection. The Protective Behaviours process encourages an adventurous approach to life that satisfies the need for fun and excitement without violence and fear"
(Ann Seal, Protective Behaviours)
 At Newburgh, we deliver this programme in January but also across the year as opportunities arise.

We always talk about using safe language, how our body lets us know if we are not feeling safe, safe and unsafe secrets, the importance of children learning the scientific names of their body parts and building a safe support network to talk with.

Please have a look at the parent resources below for more information and support.

Please do not hesitate to speak to us should you have any concerns or questions about the programme.
