Junior Citizen Key Stage 1 - SafeWise Bournemouth​

Bring PHSE and Citizenship to life at the ultimate child safety destination

Realistic and immersive learning experiences will equip your children with the skills, knowledge and confidence to help them live active, healthy and safer lives.

Discuss Decide Do
See the change in your children as they actively engage in realistic scenarios within the safe environment of our village. Our full day Junior Citizen programme is tailored for Key Stage 1 to match your PSHE national curriculum and help you fill the crucial life skills gap.

A fun and engaging day will promote teamwork, improve communication skills and build confidence as children are challenged to respond to realistic situations, think for themselves and take responsibility for their choices. Your children will enjoy a packed day of interactive scenarios including road safety, escaping from a house fire, dealing with emergencies, train and tracks, beach and water, travel and transport, personal safety on the streets, anti-social behaviour plus much more.

Aimed at Key Stage 1 the session starts and ends with a fun quiz. Children are divided into small groups for the tour with a specially trained Visitor Guide who leads them around a series of 10 minute safety scenarios. Topics are  appropriate to the

In the words of a teacher…
“Every scenario was informative, fantastic experiences, hands on. Everything relates to real life situations, so really relevant to them, pitched exactly right for their age and worries.

“Excellent guides! I could see how experienced with children they are as the group were managed brilliantly. What they have learnt today will stay with them for a long time . Thank you”
