At Herrick we are taught how to stay safe throughout the curriculum - whether it is when exploring the outdoors, using exciting outdoor play equipment, using safety in cooking/DT/PE or enjoying the outdoors.

Before doing activities where we need to manage risks, we complete risk assessments with our teachers so we understand what we need to do keep ourselves safe and why. We also have lots of special visitors including our local community police officers, fire fighters and PE Specialists.
