Our pilot was launched for 247 schools across south west England and Northern Ireland in Spring 2022. This provides access to virtual reality scenarios plus lesson plans and resources to help teachers raise safeguarding awareness in the classroom. Our partners ImpactEd are delivering a full academic evaluation with an interim report in Autumn 2022, and a full report in early 2023.
Subject to further funding, Phase 2 will extend safeguarding resources down to primary and early years. Subsequent phases will cover personal and community safety, active, independent and safer travel (including road safety), the climate emergency, mental wellbeing and much more. You can find out more about Our Plan here.
Alongside this, we are working with partners to roll out membership to schools across the UK. We are building partnerships to provide funding for membership where we can, but MultiAcademy Trusts (MATs, England) or other school networks can fund this themselves too. Member schools will be able to access all content regardless of how it is initially funded. Find out more and sign up your school here.
