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 2 to match your PSHE national curriculum and help you fill the crucial life skills gap.

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.

Skills for Life – see the change
“We know schools are madly busy with Maths, English and SATS – but don’t forget your children need vital skills for life, we can help fill the gap and add wider benefits.”

“As a former primary deputy head, I know from experience the impact of learning outside the classroom. It can transform your relationship with pupils, with huge impact on academic progress, as well as preparing them for life in the real world. Make a statement about what you think is important by booking a trip to SafeWise!”
