The SENDsafe Toolkit
We are aware that children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities can be more vulnerable to the dangers of fire.
We also recognise that teaching for SEND requires more than a single lesson plan. Teachers know their class or pupil best: what their abilities are, how much they can take-in, and what activities are suitable.
With this in mind, we have created SENDsafe – a toolkit of 27 activities, each lasting around 15 minutes. Each session involves the whole range of senses which can be mixed and matched to suit an individual group’s needs.

Our SENDsafe Toolkit covers:
- Concept of fire
- Fire hazards
- Smoke alarms
- Escaping from fire
- Calling the fire service
- What to do if your clothes catch on fire
- Firefighter’s uniform/fire engine
- Involving Parents/Carers
(Each session also includes an evaluation activity.)
Close liaison between the teacher and Fire and Rescue Service personnel will determine the bespoke format and content to make sure that the audience’s needs are understood and that the setting is appropriate.
We recommend that, prior to the actual sessions taking place, a meeting takes place to determine the best approach.
The teacher will also be the lead on decisions surrounding the best means of delivery.
