Junior Citizen Key Stage 1 - SafeWise Weymouth
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 and engaging environment of SafeWise Weymouth. Our full day Junior Citizen programmes are tailored to match your key stage 1 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 hands-on and interactive situations which bring vital fire and road safety to life in our ground-breaking and innovative centre.
Aimed at Key Stage 1 this session starts with a fun skills for life quiz to establish their current knowledge levels. Children are divided into small groups for the tour with a specially trained Visitor Guide who leads them around a series safety scenarios.
Topics are appropriate to the age group with a focus on safety. Programmes run from 10am – 2pm with a break for lunch.
Trained staff and volunteers guide groups through a series of exciting scenarios including our high-impact fire displays. Children are quizzed before leaving to discover how much they’ve learnt, and collect a certificate to take away.
It will also include:
- What to do in an emergency
Curriculum links – the programme will:
- Enable them to practise speaking and listening skills in a new and exciting context
Supercharge the rest of your curriculum

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”
