Free teaching resources to educate your children on water safety.

Looking for a way of educating and entertaining young people during these challenging times, while at the same time teaching fundamental water safety skills? Want to build in time to prepare your young people with beach and water safety skills ahead of the summer? Then why not take advantage of our free water safety teaching activities, that are available to you now and throughout the summer term.

The materials have been designed to be fun and engaging, combining videos, problem-solving activities and guided discussions. Not only will they get children's brains working, the activities also pass on invaluable water safety advice. Something that will stay with children and help them safely enjoy the beach and water for many years to come.

All the activities have been carefully put together by the RNLI Water Safety Team and have been specifically tailored for primary and secondary school aged children. You can access all the materials by clicking here.
