Autumn2: Staying Safe
At Gascoigne, we are acutely aware that pupils in our local community increasingly feel unsafe. Responding to both the perception and reality of danger, during the second half of the Autumn Term, pupils learn how to keep themselves safe both within the community and online. Pupils explore tailored pertinent issues that they may face growing up in the modern world, including bullying and discrimination, road safety, anti-social behaviour, the threat of extremism, substance misuse, gangs and knife crime. Significant emphasis is placed on helping pupils to stay safe online, understanding their digital footprint and helping to prevent them becoming victims of CSE. All sessions are delivered in an age-appropriate fashion, with the emphasis on reassuring pupils about who they can turn to for guidance and support.
