Water Safety Information from Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service
Madam Hooch from Harry Potter (Zoë Wanamaker CBE) has read a water safety story for us! https://www.dwfire.org.uk/education/safe-by-the-water/
As we head into summer and hopefully some nice weather, children and families are likely to spend more time in or near water, and although cool and inviting water can be dangerous and unpredictable. The stories “Safe at the Seaside” and “Safe at the River” will help young children understand what they can do to help themselves stay safe, and what to do if they do get in trouble in water.
