The Stay Safe Programme

As part of the SPHE Curriculum pupils in Senior Infants, First, Third and Fifth Classes will be taught lessons from Stay Safe which is a personal safety education programme. The series of lessons will be taught each school week from the end of January until the end of March (Easter Break).

The aim of the Stay Safe programme is to teach children personal safety skills so they can look after themselves in situations which could be upsetting or dangerous. It deals initially with common situations which most children will experience at some stage or other, e.g. getting lost or being bullied. The programme also teaches children the safety skills necessary to protect themselves from physical or sexual abuse and emphasises the importance of telling a trusted adult about any problems they have.

The Stay Safe programme is part of the Social, Personal and Health Education curriculum which all primary schools are required to implement. Co-operation between parents and teachers is essential to the success of this programme. It is important that parents/guardians are aware of the content of the Stay Safe lessons and are able to discuss the lessons with their children. Your child will bring home worksheets which will inform you on the topics being covered in class and help you reinforce the messages at home.

You can familiarise yourself with the content of the Stay Safe lessons by logging onto

One of the most useful aspects of the Stay Safe website is the Parent's Guide. It is available in lots of different languages. The English language version of the Parent's Guide was recently updated and can be read by clicking below. The other versions listed are the older version of the guide, however the key Stay Safe messages remain the same. Click the language you wish to read the Parent's Guide in below.
