UK Steel Enterprise (UKSE) is helping to spread important safety messages at Muirhouse Primary by purchasing specialist work books.
Every child at the school has received a ‘Play Safe, Stay Safe, Keep Safe’ accident prevention booklet produced by the Children’s Safety Education Foundation (CSEF).
‘Play Safe...’ addresses a number of key topics including safety at home, electricity, water, beaches, building sites, roads, health and fitness, first aid, bullying and drugs.
It is designed to involve parents, teachers and children in projects, activities and coursework, to educate and entertain the pupils.
Muirhouse Primary headteacher Paul Lumsden said: “It is important that our children develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to be able to keep themselves and others safe and healthy.
“This resource provides a starting point for important discussions both in school and at home, and we’re very grateful to UK Steel Enterprise for sponsoring provision of the booklets.”
UKSE area manager Anne Clyde, who is a former Muirhouse Primary pupil, said: “UKSE is very community focused and these children represent the future of our community, so educating them to become responsible citizens and keeping them safe has to be a priority.”
