‘Keeping Ourselves Safe’ Programme in NZ Primary Schools


"Evaluating the Primary School ‘Keeping Ourselves Safe’ Programme"

A Research Article by Owen Sanders (Youth Education Service, New Zealand Police)
Published in the NZRECE Journal, Vol. 9, 2006, pp.  127 - 136 and available below.


‘Keeping Ourselves Safe’ is a personal safety and child abuse prevention programme provided for children, teachers and parents/caregivers in New Zealand primary schools since 1988.

A draft early childhood ‘Keeping Ourselves Safe’ module called ‘All About Me’ has been written and is being trialled during the first half of 2006 in early childhood centres in Auckland, Porirua and Dunedin.

This paper outlines the research and evaluations to date of ‘Keeping Ourselves Safe’ and reviews the evidence that has informed and led to changes in programme delivery, content, and implementation.


For members of ChildForum, here is a PDF copy of the paper for your personal reading
