Unintentional Injury Prevention

This year we will use the responses to the health check questions to assess need in this area and design our offer around Manchester schools. 

This is a new area for healthy schools providing support across all aspects of unintentional injury prevention. 

Training & Events

Unintentional Injury Prevention (UIP) is a relatively new area for Healthy Schools’ programme. Teaching children and young people the knowledge, skills and understanding they need in order to be able to keep themselves safe in any given situation, is a fundamental part of any quality PSHE curriculum. 

Our UIP offer will support schools to consider the priority areas for their unique setting, be that road, tram, train and/or water safety, alongside safety considerations around the home.

Our universal training is available for all schools that have completed the Health Check. 

Schools that have prioritised Unintentional Injury Prevention this year will have access to a wider selection of ‘in-house’ training and support to ensure that they are able to make significant progress in this area.

Please find a full list of training available to support Unintentional Injury Prevention below.
