An interactive event for Year 6 pupils, providing safety messages to prepare for school transition.

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 secondary school, 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 available to Year 6 pupils from all primary schools within Kent.

What does it offer?

Each half-day event provides pupils with an interactive, educational, fun learning experience to discuss and learn about personal safety situations based upon realistic life situations.

Pupils rotate around different scenarios, delivered by Salus and other organisations, where they have time to talk and ask questions as well as learn.

Where is it available?

We currently deliver within the following areas: Dover, Folkestone and Hythe, Thanet, Swale, West Kent, Maidstone and North Kent. A fee per pupil is payable, although this is often subsidised through local funding.
