Knowing what SAFE means is essential for all children.
At Cotmanhay Infant and Nursery School we ensure that understanding about keeping safe is embedded throughout the school day.
We teach it in class, in assembly, at lunchtime, in PE... all the time.
At different times in the year we focus on specific safety themes such as firework safety, water safety, sun safety.
Some of the things we do:
WRAP, SPLAT, HAT!
We are taking part in the WRAP, SPLAT, HAT sun awareness programme.
Mrs Holmes is leading this and has started it off by doing assemblies with Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
Children will learn / be reminded about how to be safe in the sun.
Remember, we have a sun cream dispenser on the front playground that anyone can use.
Have a look HERE at the Wrap, Splat, Hat website for more information and competitions.
We have close links with the Ilkeston Fire Service.
They help us know more about being safe in all sorts of ways.
We use the NSPCC PANTS resources to help children understand about personal safety.
