Leeming Primary School is a participant in the Safety House WA program and offers a place of safety for children when they are away from the security and comfort of their home and school environment. The Safety House sign on a house letterbox or shop window means that the premises have been thoroughly checked and designated as a safe place. Children can go to that house or shop if they feel unsafe on their way to and from school.
For parents, the Safety House sign represents reassurance and peace of mind and shows that the local community is helping to keep their area a safe place for children. The Safety House Program is a positive preventative measure, which successfully provides assistance to children in distress and which acts as an ongoing deterrent to those people seeking to harm children in any way.
All Safety Houses within the school area are listed on noticeboards around the school. We are always looking for more houses to become part of the initiative and to keep our children safe on their way to and from school. If you know of anyone who would potentially be a good Safety House, then please contact the Safety House Coordinator via the school, or visit the Safety House website and tell us about them there!
