Stay Safe

The CAPP programme (Stay Safe) is a primary school based approach to the prevention of child abuse. The aim of the programme is to reduce vulnerability to child abuse and bullying through the provision of a personal safety education programme for children at primary school level.

 In accordance with Department of Education and Skills’, Child Protection Procedures for Primary and Post-Primary Schools 2017, all primary schools are required to fully implement the Stay Safe programme

The Stay Safe programme itself is a personal safety skills programme designed for use with primary school children from Junior Infants through to 6th class. The programme seeks to enhance children’s self-protective skills by participation in lessons on safe and unsafe situations, friendship and bullying, inappropriate touch, secrets and telling and stranger danger. The core message of Stay Safe is – Say No, Get Away and Tell.

The programme aims to give children the skills necessary to enable them to recognise and resist abuse/victimisation and teaches them that they should always tell (an adult that can help) about any situation which they find unsafe, upsetting, threatening, dangerous or abusive.
