Staying safe and enjoying our local community
Staying safe when children are out and about in the community has never been more important. In this part of our website you will be able to help your child to identify potentially dangerous situations and, more importantly, what things they can do to make sure they stay safe. Always remember that every child has the right to feel safe, wherever they are. If you do not feel safe, you should tell your parents / carer, or an adult in your house, or any of the adults at school. You can also call Childline on 08001111.

Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service are committed to taking the firework safety message to as many children as possible. As public firework displays will not be going ahead this year, families may be tempted to have fireworks in their gardens so with this is mind we feel the safety message is very important to get across to the pupils.
