STRANGER DANGER REMINDER
The police have asked us to share stranger danger advice with you to help keep you safe when you are out and about and travelling to and from school.
STRANGER DANGER PREVENTION ADVICE
Here are some simple steps you can take to make sure you stay safe on the street.
- Never go off on your own with a stranger, take things from them or get in a car with them
- Never approach a stranger sitting in a car
- Make sure you tell your parents where you are at all times
- Be alert to your surroundings
- Don't believe what strangers tell you - sometimes they will say things to make you go with them
- If someone scares you, or makes you feel uncomfortable go somewhere safe, which could be your home, your school or a police station
- If someone tries to grab you, shout loudly to get attention
- Always play where your parents can see you
- Do not answer the front door at home unless your mum or dad are there with you
- Never tell a stranger your name or address
- Do not make friends online with people you have never met and are friends with in real life (IRL) - they are strangers too
- If you are in Year 6 and walk home alone, phone your parents to tell them you have left school and then go straight home
- If you have Snapchat check the settings on the new location sharing feature, Snap Maps , including details about how to change your settings and tips for staying safe.
