NSPCC Keeping Safe Programme
Keeping Safe is a preventative education programme from NSPCC that helps primary school children in Northern Ireland learn how to keep themselves safe from all forms of abuse.
Teachers play a vital role in implementing programmes such as Keeping Safe and embedding the key messages in all aspects of school life.
NSPCC wanted to find out how best to develop teachers’ skills so they can effectively deliver preventative education. They reviewed literature about effective teacher training and carried out a needs assessment with 318 teachers from mainstream and special primary schools in Northern Ireland.
