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 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.

Your visit

Suitable for all Key Stage 2 but aimed at Year 5 or 6, this programme introduces children to topics which will prepare them for the move to secondary school including a range of safety issues and also journey planning, what to do in an emergency, peer pressure, and health and wellbeing. This programme runs from 10am – 2pm, with a 30 minute lunch break.

After a welcome, children complete a fun skills for life quiz to establish their current knowledge levels.

Trained staff and volunteers guide small groups through a series of exciting scenarios with a break for lunch. Children are quizzed before leaving to discover how much they’ve learnt, and collect a certificate to take away.

Curriculum links – the programme will also:

  • Develop speaking and listening skills in a new and exciting context
  • Provide practical experience of maths in a real shop

Supercharge the rest of your curriculum

Use your SafeWise visit as a launchpad for exciting project work across the curriculum such as Maths and English.

Teachers report changed relationships with their more challenging pupils as a result of positive experiences at SafeWise, impacting progress in the classroom.

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!’
