Water Safety Summer Campaign

This article has been brought to you by Slough Borough Council's Education Safeguarding Professional, Jatinder Matharu, for the attention of All School Colleagues.

The OECD Water Governance Programme - water

As summer is fast approaching please can you send out these water safety messages to the whole school community. We have the hot weather starting and exam season coming to an end when more young people will be enjoying the outdoors and we want them to be safe while they do so. The highest risk group for drowning deaths is young males aged 16-30.

We are excited to share the water safety resources with you for this summer’s campaign.
