Safeguarding Through the Curriculum 

Safeguarding is at the heart of everything we do here at Heath Primary School. Great importance is placed on identifying opportunities in the taught curriculum for children to learn about safeguarding, ensuring that a wide range of topics are covered and children understand:

  • what healthy relationships look like: including families, friendships, respectful relationships online and in person, consent and being safe
  • how to look after their physical and mental wellbeing: including healthy eathing, the importance of exercise, physical health and fitness, sleep routines, basic first aid, changing bodies and the effects of drugs, alcohol and tobacco
  • how to stay safe online: including contact, commerce, conduct and content and what to do if you are worried 

Our broad curriculum gives pupils opportunities to experience life in all its diversity, to acquire knowledge, understanding, and skills that significantly impact personal development, behaviour, and welfare, and equips every child with the knowledge and skills required for personal safeguarding. 

Please see our curriculum, assembly tab for more information.
