A visit to The Safe is like no other field trip. Located just behind the Gordon Barracks in Aberdeen, our facility is a one-stop safety shop. We take our visitors on an unforgettable safety adventure that gives real-life context to the learning experience.
The Safe is the name given to our interactive facility, where the Absafe team and volunteers deliver engaging, fun and informative sessions that teach children about everyday hazards and how to deal with them. Including:
Our programs cater for different levels of the curriculum from nursery through to secondary. We can accommodate mixed ability groups of any size up to 50 pupils at a time.
Each visit consists of an induction and assessment of the children’s abilities, a series of small group workshops on each of the topics, and a final assessment and feedback session at the end of the day.
We test our visitors’ safety knowledge before and after a visit to The Safe, with students showing an average improvement of 42%
At Absafe, we make safety education fun.
It’s our mission to ensure we’re at the heart of building safer communities – and we do this by making our learning engaging and interactive. We’re here to educate schoolchildren about the fundamentals of personal safety so they can make informed decisions to keep themselves, and others, safe.
A child’s safety journey starts with us. By educating children in safe practices now, by adolescence safety awareness and behaviours become ingrained. When they join the workplace, they’ll be engaged with company practice, see safety as a positive tool and set a gold standard for safety.
For schools in Aberdeen City, we’re funded by Aberdeen City Council so that every Primary 7 child receives a complimentary day visit. Our lessons follow the Curriculum for Excellence, ensuring our delivery is age appropriate, supports required learning outcomes, and fits GIRFEC principals.
