Student personal safety Essex Student personal safety training will benefit students of all ages throughout their education. Older students will value simple self defence skills to help keep themselves safe, whilst younger ones become more aware of the world around them. Talks are geared toward students in Year 7 and Year 12 but any year group will benefit from gaining useful personal safety strategies. Tailored talks will deliver and embed sensible attributes based around the unique S.A.F.E concept developed by Personal Safety Essex. S.A.F.E :- Scan Assess Feeling Evaluate
Year 7 For many students it is the first time they have had to commute to their place of education. Travelling on public transport and engaging with the wider public on their journey can give rise to unfortunate incidents such as robbery or physical assault.
The Year 7 talk covers areas such as:
Understanding your personal safety. Awareness, importance of location, verbal boundary enforcement.
Danger signs. Recognition, ability, opportunity and intent.
How patterns and space can enhance personal safety
This talk is usually 1 hour duration and is supported by a PowerPoint presentation. Students are actively encouraged to become involved and ask questions. It also helps students learn to respect themselves and others whilst embedding core values to support their life ahead. Cost £60.
Year 12 The Year 12 talk is usually 1 hour duration and builds upon and enhances the Year 7 talk. Students are introduced to young adult themes such as knife crime, effects of alcohol on behaviour and barriers, physical and sexual assault, and peer pressure. Aspects of self defence are discussed and in particular, the Law and self defence. The Law states that an act of self defence must be necessary, reasonable and proportionate. Cost £60
Some simple yet highly effective self defence skills can be practiced together with an element of role play. This often allows students to share their thoughts and promotes open discussion on themes that effect them. This takes the talk up to 1.5 hours duration and this is reflected in the cost. Cost £75.
You can also have a tailored event to fit your timescale. Anything is possible. Understanding and embedding the message is important and it has to work for your students.
