Keeping our Children Safe: Stranger Danger

As part of our ongoing student wellbeing we teach our children about the importance of personal safety, not just at school but outside of school as well. It is important that our children are able to recognise unsafe situations and have the appropriate strategies to respond if they are in an unsafe situation.

Parents can support the messages taught at school through having regular discussions with their children, especially about the importance of knowing how to respond to strangers. A simple strategy we sometimes use at school is 'No, Go, Tell' in which children are taught to say 'No' to an unsafe situation, 'Go' away from the situation and 'Tell' a trusted person so that you can get some help. Having these regular discussions, posing scenarios and planning strategies will help equip our children should they find themselves in an unsafe situation.
