Using an engaging mixture of fly-on-the-wall lessons, role-play by pupils and staff, and drect address by professional officials, it offers many starting points for activities and discussions in special and mainstream classes. The emphasis is on taking responsibility and thinking ahead to avoid trouble or danger.
