Glasgow City Council, in partnership with a number of key organisations has developed a new and ground breaking resource to teach young children about the hazards and consequences they may face in everyday life and how to make the right choices to stay safe. It was agreed to develop a web based interactive education suite, linking all aspects of child safety within health and well being.

Written by experienced teachers from Glasgow and Fife and overseen by Education Quality Improvement Officers, this new resource will be of significant benefit to teachers in delivering early intervention education and information relating to the learning and teaching of health and wellbeing as part of the curriculum for excellence.

At present the fire, water, home, digital, personal, outdoor and road safety sections are live and rail safety and my community sections are under development with a view to being launched in the autumn of 2016.

Each of the partners involved, Fife Community Safety Partnership, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, Scotland Gas Networks, Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, Scottish Water, ScotRail and the NHS have provided their key messages which have been transformed into engaging interactive lessons, including short films and e books.

There is also a section for parents, which is currently being developed to make sure the safety message continues at home.

We have designed Go Safe Scotland as a free resource, that can be accessed and used by teachers and parents either in the classroom or at home.

This is a true example of partnership working to reduce child casualties.
