Claverdon Primary School

Protective Behaviours

We teach about protective behaviours to all children.  This scheme of work is incorporated into PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) lessons.  The scheme is entitled 'Taking Care' and originated in America and we currently use the Warwickshire programme designed by Ann Seal (WCC).  The programme aims to give children age appropriate strategies for talking about their feelings and in particular their own personal safety and wellbeing.

We share the information via booklets sent home to parents and organise a briefing evening for Reception and other new parents each year.
