How do our children learn about keeping safe?

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. 

We have this BIG sign in our hall and it helps us think about different types of safety. We often use it in our assembly time...

We make posters, enter competitions and sing songs about being safe.


We have some big signs on the car park showing people how to be safe by roads. We designed them and a local company, A W Lymn, sponsored them.



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.
