Protective Behaviours

At Wirrabirra Education Support Centre we place a strong emphasis on the safety of our students. Protective Behaviours is a program that teaches students how to keep themselves safe from the risks that surround us in our everyday life. By teaching and reinforcing the two primary concepts “everyone has the right to feel safe at all times” and “nothing is so awful we can’t talk about it.” Protective Behaviours is a key component within each child’s Individual Education Plan and is explicitly taught in all classrooms. We aim to teach our students with strategies they need to keep themselves safe, which is implemented through role play, social stories and structured lessons.
