The learning activities in Keeping Ourselves Safe are arranged in focus areas. Research suggests that an effective programme should include learning experiences from each of the focus areas. All focus areas on this page were updated in 2020.
Focus area 1: Confident me
Students learn to verbalise their feelings confidently. They practise a decision-making process that will help them to make safe decisions for themselves and others.
