Child Safety Week

Child Safety Week is running from Monday 1st June to Sunday 7th June 2015. Child Safety Week aims to put children in the centre stage with a focus on keeping them safe from accidents and injury. It is organised by the Child Accident Prevention Trust.

Child Safety Week 2015 at Sutton Life Centre

Sutton Life Centre provides a learning outside the classroom opportunity for pupils in primary schools (Year 5 and 6) and secondary schools (Year 7 and 8) focusing on a number of PSHE and safety issues including:

  • Bullying
  • Alcohol & Smoking
  • Knife Crime
  • Transport Safety
  • Personal Safety
  • Fire Safety
  • Internet Safety
  • Domestic Violence
    • If your school is looking to do something different for Child Safety Week this year, Sutton Life Centre provides an educational experience like no other, aimed at pupils from Year 5 right up to Year 8. Your pupils will be immersed into real-life audio-visual scenes as they travel through each of our four unique Learning Zones, each of which delivers a different learning experience.

      The Street Experience is an urban setting with real shop facades. This is where students will be faced with some of the dilemmas and difficult choices that growing up may throw at them, including peer pressure, alcohol, smoking, street crime, gangs, knives and bullying.

      The Transport Experience is designed to look and feel like a train station. Stand well away from the edge of the platform, and you’ll learn about keeping safe on buses and trains, platform safety, personal safety, robbery, respect for fellow passengers and the impact of anti-social behaviour such as littering or graffiti.

      The Home Experience is a fully fitted apartment with a kitchen, dining room, living room and bedroom. This area covers healthy eating, fire safety, and how to manage issues such as domestic violence, broken families, cyber-bullying, internet safety and online friendship.

      The Virtual Experience is our 360° theatre which uses video, graphics, sound and lighting to recreate a range of virtual worlds from derelict buildings to the tropical rainforests. In here, you’ll find yourself in the middle of a digital immersive environment like no other, with a series of short documentaries covering topics on urban safety, including trespass on the railway, exploring derelict buildings and playing with fire. Green issues are also covered, including recycling, sustainable living, climate change and the environment.
