Staying Safe

Staying Safe advice 

  • Never go off on your own with a stranger, take things from them or get into a car with them
  • Always tell your parent/ carer where you are
  •  If someone scares you, or makes you feel uncomfortable go somewhere safe, which could be your home, your school or a police station, or a busy place like shops where lots of people will be around
  • If a stranger approaches you tell someone what happened straight away
  • Never accept gifts or sweets from a stranger
  • Never go off on your own without telling a parent/ carer or trusted adult
  • Always use the safest route to walk to school avoiding isolated places
