This is an interactive event held across Kent for year 6 pupils, providing safety messages and support as they transition within school and the community.

What is this service?

Safety in Action has been running in Kent since the early 1990’s, with several thousand children from Maidstone, Dover, Folkestone and Hythe, Tonbridge and Malling and Tunbridge Wells, Tunbridge Wells and more taking part. It is supported by many organisations including Salus, Kent Police, Kent Fire and Rescue Service, RNLI, Kent County Council, British Transport Police and UK Power Networks.

Through this multi-agency approach we deliver safety messages to young people as they prepare to transition to year 7. Providing them with tips and advice about how they can stay safe, access services and develop personal and social skills. The event is designed to develop citizenship and safety skills and to increase awareness of dangers.

Who is it for?

Safety in Action is open to year 6 pupils from all primary schools within Kent.

What does it offer?

Safety in Action is an interactive event for Year 6 children to learn about some of the dangers they may face as they become more independent and prepare for transition to secondary school. We aim to provide an educational, fun learning experience for year 6 students to discuss and learn about personal safety situations based upon realistic life situations, direct from agency and organisation staff. We provide an interactive half day event, working alongside our multi-agency team, where the pupils have time to talk and ask questions as well as learn.

Where is it available?

We currently deliver within the following areas, Dover, Folkstone and Hythe, Thanet, Swale, West Kent, Maidstone and North Kent.
