Introduction to Safety Scene for Special Schools

Safety Scene activities for special schools and young people are identical to the facilities offered to primary school visits.

The entire Safety Scene set is accessible throughout for people with physical disabilities and we can also supply pavement ramps (if required, the pavements are approximately 50mm high) and telephones with extra large keypads.

We would however, suggest the following changes are made for a special schools visit. Either the numbers of young people attending a Safety Scene visit are reduced or that each activity (within Safety Scene) is lengthened in order for the young people to get the full benefit during their visit.

For further information please see an Introduction to Safety Scene for Primary Schools

Happy Safe Children

There have been over 60,000 happy children and young people who have attended Safety Scene over the years.

Thanks to the efforts and enthusiasm of all the promoters and agencies involved in the events, not only does everyone attending learn about safety but there are many happy smiling faces. It makes it all the hard work, planning, time…worthwhile.
