Primary RESPECT is a 6 week programme in line with the ethos of engaging with children to boost confidence and self esteem. After the course has completed we will celebrate the young people's achievements in an assembly. Pupils will take part in activities such as hose running, 'blind' trails, quizzes and roll call.
The experience is delivered in a similar way to Fire Cadet training and each child wears the same Fire Kit (junior size) as a Firefighter.
Overall, the programme generates a number of positive outcomes for children, for example:
Raising aspirations and motivation.
Increasing levels of self esteem by feeling part of a team.
Developing social skills by interacting with Fire Station staff, team leaders and team mates.
Building an awareness of consequences of actions, reducing likelihood for engagement in anti-social or risk-taking behaviour.
Becoming more receptive to regular physical activity by taking part in fun energetic games and hose running.
The cost of the course is £560.
