RoSPA supports govt plans to help pupils evaluate risks
Posted by Ben Alexander
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has backed proposals for children to be educated on risks.
In its review of the National Curriculum in Schools, the Department for Education has suggested a programme of study for science across Key Stages 3 and 4.
It would see pupils being taught about health and safety when engaged in experimental skills, while the ability to evaluate risks would also make up part of the teaching.
Jenny McWhirter, risk education adviser for RoSPA, said: "We support fully this proposal to help children and young people recognise hazards, assess risks and take steps to control risks.
"It is vital that we share such skills – and not just in one school subject."
Ms McWhirter added that she hopes risk education will make up a key part of personal, social, health and economic education.
A new version of the National Curriculum will be available in 2013, ahead of first teaching in schools in September 2014.
