Safety Officers

Every Year, two of our Year 6 pupils take responsibility for leading Safety within school. They will work with Cheshire West and Chester Council and Cheshire Constabulary, to encourage and persuade people to behave safely and responsibly whenever they are out on the roads, in the local community, in school and at home and on the internet. This year, Isabelle and Alex have taken on the role and will be working hard sharing the message on how to keep safe through assemblies, competitions, their noticeboard and on the website.

October Focus

The focus for this month is Be Safe, Be Seen

It is very important during the Autumn and Winter months to wear bright clothing so that we can be seen when the days are often dull and the nights are much longer.

We have a competition running over half term.

Juniors, we would like you to write a poem, rap or rhyme about why it is important to wear bright clothes during the Autumn and Winter months

Infants and Nursery, we would like you to colour in a picture in the brightest colours you can find to make them stand out.

There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Best of luck.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNERS

Here is our 1st place poem from our Juniors

Be Safe, Be Seen,

Wear Yellow and Green.

Don't wear dark clothes - cars can't see those.

Dull is no use,

You'll be smushed into juice.

So if you're out in the night,

Just wear clothes that are nice and bright. 

Well done Emily, a lovely poem with an important message.

November Focus

The focus for this month is Stranger Danger & Internet Safety

Who is a stranger? Well a stranger is someone you have just met or you don’t know very well and whilst most strangers won’t cause any harm, remember you must always be careful.

Here are some useful tips to keep you safer:

NEVER: Go off with a stranger either with friends or on your own.

NEVER: Give your name, address or any personal information to someone on the internet or who you don’t know.

ALWAYS: Speak to a trusted adult if someone makes you feel uncomfortable.

ALWAYS: Check out personal safety and internet safety rules with your parents/carers.

ALWAYS: Have rules when you are out with friends and tell your parents or carers where you are going, who you are with, when you will be back and if you change your plans!

If you are out and about and don’t feel safe, go into a shop and tell the assistant, tell the bus driver or you could approach a group of people to ask them for help.

DON’T GO OFF ON YOUR OWN WITH ANYONE YOU DON’T KNOW OR KNOW WELL.

In an emergency phone 999 and ask for the POLICE!

If you feel you can’t talk to any one call Childline on 0800 1111 it is confidential and Calls are not recorded and the number won't show up on any phone bills. or visit their website https://www.childline.org.uk/

If you come by car why not ask if you can park further away and walk the extra distance, it will give you some fresh air and help you start the day well.

 

Here is a short poem

Let’s go walking

Here & there,

Looking at nature

Everywhere.

Let’s go walking

Off to school,

We keep ourselves safe

We follow the rules.

 

Let’s go walking

All of us,

Walking & talking

We won’t take the bus.

Let’s go walking

It’s fun to do,

Walking with me

Walking with you.

 

Let’s go walking in our street,

Why are we walking

‘It’s Walk to School Week’

 

One thing you should always remember to do is to follow The Green Cross Code

Arrive alive. Keep looking and listening for traffic while you cross

The Green Cross Code

STOP: Think first. Find a safe place to cross then stop. Stand on the pavement near the kerb.

LOOK: Use your eyes and ears. Look all around for traffic and listen.

LISTEN: Wait till it's safe to cross. If traffic is coming, let it pass, look all around again.

THINK: Look and listen again. When there's no traffic near, walk straight across the road.

June Focus

 

Our focus for this month is Bicycle Safety & Security

 

Here are some tips to help to keep you and your bike safe;

Make sure you secure your bike tightly with a good security lock so that it is hard to move when it’s parked. 

 

Always complete a five-point bike check, checking Tyres, Brakes, Chain, Lights and Reflectors before setting off.

 

Wherever possible use cycle routes, paths or lanes away from busy traffic.

 

Wear something light, brightly coloured or fluorescent in the day. At night, wear something white or reflective.

 

Always look all around before you set off.  Give clear hand signals and look out for obstacles in the road. 

 

Ring the bell as a warning to others to let them know you are approaching.

 

Concentrate - never use a mobile phone or iPod when cycling.

 

Don’t forget to wear a cycle helmet!
