Lesson 2

Lesson 2.

Taking action

Now it is time to investigate your school environment and conduct an audit based on the 4 principles from Step 1: Thinking about what makes a place safe.

  • Coming and going
  • Keeping watch
  • Showing we care
  • Having fun

Activity Time

This can be done as a whole class or in small groups.

You can choose one location or a range of spaces around the school to be assessed.

Once you have chosen your location, explore the area using your senses (sight, smell, touch, hearing). 

Think about how do you feel about the location and what can be done to improve the location and make it safer?  

Using one Exploring my school audit sheet per group, write the name of the location and in each section list at least one positive and one negative example. (You can also take photos or video of positive and negative examples).
