Wider Safety

At Springwell Park we believe in educating our pupils on how to keep safe in school and when they are out in the local community and when online. 


In addition to our PSHE curriculum we plan events into our school year to support the wider safety of pupils.



Keeping Safe Online – Safer Internet week

Every year at Springwell Park we have Online Safety Week where we deliver a range of activities focusing on giving children strategies to keep themselves safe online. PC Gaz from the Cyber Crime Unit at Merseyside Police comes in to school to deliver assemblies, workshops for children and drop in sessions for parents to develop their awareness of online safety.  We cover issues such as blocking and reporting, 

password safety, sites to be aware of  and how to keep your information safe on line.



Road safety 

Reception have balance bike sessions to introduce them to bike safety 

Year 5 pupils take part in Bikeability sessions – cycling safely on the road. 



Crucial Crew – Health and Safety 

Crucial Crew is an interactive way of delivering health and well-being messages to Year 5 children in preparation for their migration to secondary school. The event encourages model behaviour and good citizenship through active participation in a range of health and safety activities. Professionals from the combined Emergency Services and local agencies will be on hand to instruct children on matters that will teach community values and could save lives.


Safe Skills 

At Springwell Park , we are very aware of the risks in the wider community surrounding our school.  To help prepare our children to deal with  situations they may face, we deliver a week of Safe Skills sessions to our Year 6 children.  These training materials are prepared by The Ariel Trust who work very closely with Merseyside Police. These sessions cover a variety of topics such as  motivation and intention, identifying risks, when and how to ask for help, empowering the bystander and grassing and grooming.  The sessions are delivered using role play and the children are encouraged to actively participate. Safe Skills is a highly effective way to empower our children with the necessary skills to help them to keep themselves safe.

Harmful Sexual Behaviour Workshops

In Year 5 and 6 the children take part in workshops to develop their understanding of what  constitutes harmful sexual behaviour.  The workshops cover topics such as inappropriate language, accessing inappropriate content online and consent. 


Gangs Workshops  -  Get Away N Get Safe

Every year, James, aka the Gangs Man, comes to deliver workshops to our Year 6 children. His aim is to "educate, inspire and empower young people to take control of their future by rejecting the gang lifestyle".

he GANGS programme is an intensive 5 session educational, preventative and diversionary programme which aims to educate young people on the dangers of the gang lifestyle for the individual, their families and the wider community. The content covers issues such as joint enterprise, consequences, retaliation, victims and criminal explotation.

It is anticipated that the GANGS programme will empower young people to make informed decisions about their current or future associates and lifestyle, thus reducing the potential risks of gang related behaviour. 

The programme is inclusive of all learning styles and uses presentations, role play, music and videos to engage the participants whilst continually sending out the message, “Get Away ‘N’ Get Safe".


Mini Medics 

Our Y5 children complete the mini medics first aid course which gives them basic first aid skills.
