Stay Safe Programme

What is 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, continuing professional development for teachers, training for Boards of Management and information sessions for parents.


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, bullying, inappropriate touch, secrets, telling and stranger danger.


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.




the capp programme are currently in the process of updating and revising the Stay Safe programme for primary schools.  As we would like to get as much feedback as possible about the programme, we are conducting an online survey of parents and teachers.  We would be obliged if you would put the following links on your school website or include details of the survey in your next  newsletter:

 Alternatively you could log on to the Stay Safe website  where they can also complete the survey, and find other useful information. 


We appreciate any assistance you can give us on this matter.
