for Parents and Carers

At Winthrop Primary School, we believe that all children have the right to feel safe at all times but we also know as parents, carers and teachers we cannot be with each child every minute of the day.

The physical and emotional impact of bullying, cyber bullying, child abuse and domestic violence is now much better understood.  Research consistently shows that teaching children preventive ways of staying safe, such as those described in the protective behaviours program, is an effective way of strengthening children’s ability to recognise danger, seek help and minimise risk.

Winthrop Primary School is committed to teaching every child the protective behaviours program in partnership with you. Parents and carers play a vital role in helping children develop personal safety and resilience skills and it’s very important children hear the same messages at school and home.  Working together, we can help our children to recognise unsafe situations and be proactive and confident in their response.

By attending this workshop, you will:

  • learn the key principles of the protective behaviours program
  • understand the positive impact of the protective behaviours program for children
  • discuss how the protective behaviours program is being taught at school and
  • practise activities and ways to speak with your child at home about personal safety that aligns with what they have learnt at school.
