Protective Behaviours

At Hopping Hill Primary School, we use the Protective Behaviours Programme which forms part of our PSHE curriculum.

Protective Behaviours is a practical and down to earth approach to personal safety.  The aim of the programme is to teach our children about how to feel safe, how to talk about their feelings and how to recognise safe and unsafe feelings.  This helps children to feel safe to have an adventurous approach to life that satisfies their desire for fun and excitement without living in fear.  Protective Behaviours helps children to recognise and trust their intuitive feelings – early warning signs – and to support them in developing a range of strategies for self-protection.



The lessons are specifically tailored to meet the needs of the different year groups, from Early Years to Year 6 and usually take place in term one of the school year, although this is later for early years.  Please see our PSHE Long Term Map in our learning section of the website for further information on the PSHE curriculum. 

Please take some time to explore the resources below that give an overview of the scheme and provide you with practical advice to help keep your child safe.  If you have any questions or queries, please speak to your child's class teacher who will be happy to tell you more about Protective Behaviours or speak to Mrs White, the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead.
