New SafeWise school membership aims for top marks
Posted on: 09/10/2020
An innovative new national membership for primary schools launches this week by Dorset-based skills for life charity SafeWise.
The membership delivers virtual experiences of the SafeWise learning village along with curriculum-linked resources for teachers plus a range of other features, such as home learning, for the whole school community.
Membership will contribute to a broad and balanced curriculum for schools, and focuses on building children’s resilience and confidence, critical thinking, decision-making, communication skills and more.
SafeWise Chief Executive Rob Hattersley said: “Our new SafeWise School Membership for primary schools brings skills for life and safety education straight into the classroom via a virtual learning village and specially created resources.
“The new programmes have been developed by our in-house qualified teaching professionals, at a time when skills for life are more important than ever before as we all adapt to a new Covid world.
“As well as the classroom experience, the membership includes brand new in-centre visits to SafeWise Bournemouth which are set to start early next year, as well as many other benefits for schools and their families.
“I would like to thank all our incredible partners for the faith and support they have shown in SafeWise during the pandemic, and as we launch this exciting new membership.”
Dorset schools can get a special deal by signing up as a founding member during a limited period for the price of £250.
Following recruitment of Dorset founder schools, SafeWise will roll out full-price membership nationally following interest from other areas of the country and safety centres.
The membership is the first stage of an ambitious new business model for SafeWise, with future development already underway for immersive virtual reality experiences for secondary school pupils in Key Stage 3.

Bournemouth-based digital agency Digital Storm has worked with SafeWise to develop a digital dashboard for members to access all their membership benefits.
