Smart Choices Programme

Programme overview

What is the programme for?

Launched in 2019 to replace our Junior Citizen programme, Smart Choices aims to bring your PSHE curriculum to life through interactive and practical learning using the Safeside Safety Village.

This life-like setting includes a road crossing, bus, train, canal, house, alleyway, police station and street scene. Our revised programme comprises of a full day visit in which the children will experience four zones exploring the themes of road, water, fire, electrical and personal safety and are guided through activities and experiences by our team of staff and volunteer safety advisers.

The children are encouraged to think for themselves, learn about the possible consequences of actions and build the confidence to make Smart Choices in different life situations.
