Water Safety Education




Water Safety Scotland works to Drive a generational change to facilitate greater safety education and enjoyment in and around water.

Water Safety Scotland supports practitioners to further develop children's and young people's understanding and awareness of the dangers of water, enabling them to safely participate in water-based activities.

We have two main projects to help achieve this:

Lessons in schools: Working with Education Scotland, age- and stage-appropriate water safety education lessons have been planned to support all children and young people aged 3 to 18 to develop valuable lifesaving knowledge, skills and understanding. Hosted on the Education Scotland National Improvement Hub , the lessons can also be found in the side tab.

Water Safety workshop: The free-to-download resource features engaging activities that prompt young people to think critically about the risks they take and provides clear guidance on what to do in the event of an emergency.

 The resources are free to download but please read our branding guidelines here.
