PSHE: Hazard Alley 03.07.24

Today, Year Six visited the Hazard Alley Safety Centre in Milton Keynes. Our morning was spent learning important messages about drugs and alcohol. During this session, the children learnt what drugs are and how they affect us. They learnt about the laws surrounding the use of drugs and also about how to identify risky situations and make the right choices.

After lunch, we visited the safety village where the children were immersed safely in an everyday world of risks and dangers. The children were led through twelve everyday scenarios where they had to identify hazards building their confidence, skills and strategies to keep themselves and others safe.

It was an absolute pleasure to take Year Six out today, the staff and volunteers at the safety centre commented on how knowledgeable, polite and well-behaved they all were. They made us very proud! It was also wonderful to see how well our PSHE curriculum prepares our children for life in the wider world – they knew so much already and were confident to share and discuss essential safety messages.
