Feeling Good Feeling Safe whole school programme

Helping primary aged children to feel and stay safe

‘Feeling Good, Feeling Safe’ is a whole school approach to preventing violence and abuse which aims to support pupils from Reception to Year 6 to learn the skills to keep themselves feeling safe and to ensure they can get help if they need it.

It is based on Protective Behaviours, an evidence based programme and its two core themes:

“We all have the right to feel safe all the time”

“We can talk with someone about anything, even if it feels awful or small”

The resource when delivered will help schools to demonstrate how they meet the Ofsted requirements around Keeping Children Safe. This pack is not just focussed on those children who have already experienced abuse, but is for all children, as it teaches skills for life which can be used in everyday safety situations, as well as to address more serious problems. The Protective Behaviours lessons are intended to be delivered as part of a school’s planned programme of PSHE education.

What does the Programme Include?

  1. Lesson plans for each year group from Reception to year 6:
  2. Ideas for reinforcing the principles and language of Protective Behaviours across the whole school setting
  3. involving parents and carers in reinforcing safety messages for children

what do schools think of the pack?

“The Protective Behaviour’s approach has been extremely beneficial to our school. The training and planning booklets have enabled us to raise confidence within our staff team in talking to children about protecting themselves and recognising and understanding their feelings.”
