The SHIELD Programme is a flagship initiative for Local Authorities and MATS to roll out in all their schools.
It is a personal safety & de-escalation programme that impacts positively on the health and well-being of every student aged 8/9 years +.
The SHIELD training will allow school staff to deliver the world’s best personal safety protocol to their students. Children will have the skills and techniques to move to safety when faced by physical threat and/or danger.
How it works:
Members of your staff attend a 1 day training workshop
They are taught how to train your students in de-escalation and personal safety techniques
At the end of the day they take our exam and are certified by us to train your students
After the workshop there is access to online resources to support your staff and students
Re certification every 2 years to maintain quality

Why do we need to teach our students about personal safety?
Sadly we are all aware of the high profile case of Sarah Everard who was recently abducted and murdered in London.
Ellie Gould, a 17 year old 6th form student, was also murdered this time in her own home.
What do the figures say?
500,000 crimes are committed against children in the UK, each and every year
500 children are mugged every day
There are 50 adductions of children by a stranger each year in the UK
Supporting schools with the 4 Ofsted Judgements
Quality of Education
Behaviour & Attitudes
“leaders take on or construct a curriculum that is ambitious & designed to give all learners, particularly the most disadvantaged, the knowledge they need to succeed in life”
“Leaders, teachers and learners create an environment where bullying, peer on peer abuse or discrimination is not tolerated”
“the curriculum and the provider’s wider work support learners to develop their character – including their resilience, confidence & independence – to help them to know how to keep physically & mentally healthy”
“those with responsibility for governance ensure that the provider fulfils its statutory duties, for example: safeguarding, and promoting the welfare of learners”
The SHIELD Personal Safety Programme will impact positively on the Health & Well-being of students as measured by the SHEU Survey
Areas of high impact include:
Worrying & coping
Enjoying & achieving
Supporting school ethos & culture
The programme teaches de-escalation through body language and choice speech. Students develop skills that improve decision making when dealing with conflict & confrontation.
This has a positive impact on a school ethos & culture, as students employ their new skills & understanding to resolve difficult & challenging situations.
All skills and techniques are ethically, morally & legally compliant
This 1-day workshop will empower & certify teachers to deliver world leading personal safety skills to their students. Based around the philosophy of de-escalation, students will gain an understanding to the body’s natural response to danger. They will then be taught to access functional movement with the sole purpose of moving them to safety.
Back up resources
After the workshop, all techniques & skills will be backed up by online videos & documentation for reference and to embed learning.
Empowering schools to independently deliver proactive & positive safeguarding skills, with respect to personal safety
What expertise underpins the programme?
The SHIELD programme is written by Andy Privett who has been a qualified teacher for over 25 years and a personal safety coach for almost 3 decades. He has always had a desire to ‘make the world safer’.
Through Streetwise365, Andy has been delivering personal safety training to schools, teachers and students. To date thousands of students have been through the Streetwise programme.
In the business sector de-escalation training has been successfully run in Doctors surgeries, estate agents & solicitors.
All the information is underpinned by the Spear system which was developed by Coach Blauer. This system is the world’s best, and underpins good practice is police forces and 1st responders around the world. For example, every prison officer in the UK is now trained in Spear de-escalation/personal safety protocol. The SHIELD programme directly correlates with the SPEAR principles and methodology.
