Introduction to Safety Scene for Primary Schools

Safety Scene is an interactive hands-on experience for children. Aimed at children, teachers, specialist staff, and classroom assistants studying key stage 1 Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE).

Safety Scene covers all aspects of safety in the curriculum and has been designed as an interactive experience for children and to assist staff in reaching their attainment targets.

“Pupils should be able to keep themselves safe in the home, at school, while travelling, at work, in play, in sport and in leisure. Safety education helps them to recognise potential risks.”

Learning outcomes: During their two-hour session the children will learn:

  • What to do in case of a fire
  • How to call the emergency services
  • What dangerous substances to look out for in the home
  • What dangerous hazards to look out for in the home
  • Awareness of strangers and personal safety
  • Awareness of medicines and how medicines should only by taken with an adult present
  • Road safety
  • And more depending on the local message that the promoter & safety agencies that are present, wishes to get across during the event

The project’s aim is for the children to take away important messages, which will contribute to their future safety and equip them to deal with potentially dangerous situations and emergencies.

Interactive safety education schemes provide opportunities for school children and other members of the community to learn about safety and the prevention of unintentional injury in realistic settings. Schemes focus primarily on Home, Travel, Leisure and Personal Safety.

Safety Scene Activities

Each area of Safety Scene has a selection of activities for the children to take part in. Each set of activities lasts for approximately 12 minutes. Each agency can tailor their activities to fit into their local safety agenda. The aims that follow each activity are suggestions only, please feel free to use them or create your own to suit your individual requirements.

Fire Station:

Children get to meet and chat to the Fire Officers. Trying out various activities like “Stop, Drop & Roll”, trying on uniforms. The main aims are:

  • learning how to cope in a fire emergency
  • getting to know the fire service

Police Station:

Meeting the Police Officers and chatting about “Stranger Danger” and other key health & safety messages. The main aims are:

  • recognising stranger danger
  • understanding personal safety
  • getting to know the police service

Road Network:

There are four crossing networks in Safety Scene including; scaled down, fully operational traffic lights, Zebra crossings, with Pelican crossings and road markings. Children get the opportunity to discuss road safety with the Local Road Safety Officer and School Crossing Patrol. The main aims are:

  • crossing the road safely
  • recognise and learn to use and obey traffic signals

The Health Clinic:

At the Health Clinic, the children get an opportunity to talk about medicines and what they need to know about how to stay safe with medicines. The main aims are learning to:

  • understand the potential dangers of medicines
  • safe use of medicines
  • getting to know the agency present

The Lounge & Kitchen:

Both the lounge & kitchen have been designed to incorporate many of the most common problems that cause accidents today, e.g. tripping hazards, ironing boards & irons, overloaded plug sockets, dangerous appliances, water and electricity… The main aims are learning to:

  • recognise potential dangers in and around the home

The Free Zone:

The Free Zone is a flexible space and has a multitude of different props, which can be included to tailor the space to a promoters requirement. However, this space can be used for any purpose a promoter requires, e.g. recycling, e-learning, etc.

The Free Zone can be empty or include:

  • fake electrical consumer unit – housed under the stairs
  • a bedroom containing a domestic phone

In the past used this space has been used for:

  • practising emergency phone calls
  • dealing with electric shocks
  • first aid
  • recycling

The Phone Network:

Safety Scene has it’s own phone network, which can be staffed by a switchboard operator. The children get an opportunity to practice how to correctly make an emergency 999 or a 112 call. This can be done using a high street phone booth or a domestic phone. Both have a hidden speaker so that all the children or young people can list to the conversation or the hidden speaker can be disconnected and children can practice on a one-to-one basis.

Additional Ideas:

N.B. Don’t forget that at the end of each activity presents an ideal time for each agency to be able to talk to the participants in a relaxed and positive environment. So planning a simple Q & A chat would be a useful fall back.
