The aim of The Gingerbread project is to deliver a unique and extensive Protective Behaviours programme for pupils between 4-11 years in a Primary School setting. Using a wrap-around approach and keeping the pupil’s needs central, the main themes and strategies of the Protective Behaviours process will provide essential safeguarding practice for children, school staff and parents/carers.
This programme enables children to explore the sense of feeling safe and learn strategies to keep themselves feeling safe whenever they may feel unsafe. The principles and practices of Protective Behaviours encourage children to become more assertive around their own and others emotional wellbeing, developing and maintaining safe and healthy relationships.
