Living and learning free from crime and crash is good for all members of the school community.
Children learn better when:
- they feel – and are – safe
- their learning about safety at school is reinforced in the home
- they have opportunities to take action for their own safety and the safety of their friends, whānau, family and community/iwi
- their learning about safety is relevant and pitched at their level.
As the saying goes, 'It takes a village to raise a child'. In the same way, we need all members of the school community to get involved so that children and young people feel safe and are safe.
How to get involved
There are many ways people may get involved with safety at their school. For example, you could:
- take part in school events
- ask questions about the safety related things the children are learning at school
- ask the school Board of Trustee(s) to make child safety a priority goal in the school charter.
