Yorkshire Coast Children Can Learn Water Safety From Home

Yorkshire Coast Children Can Learn Water Safety From Home

Published by Karen Liu at 8:14am 1st April 2020.

A home schooling resource has been launched by the RNLI so children on the Yorkshire Coast can learn about water safety from home.

It is called 'Water Safety Wednesday' and the charity is offering downloadable content as well as a Facebook Live event every Wednesday at 10.15am.

Explaining the initiative, the RNLI’s Regional Water Safety Lead for the North East and East, Nick Ayers, said:

"During these uncharted times, some of you may be looking for ways to engage, educate and entertain your children at home. And even more of you will have family, friends and loved ones in the same boat.

This Wednesday (1 April), we’ll be hosting a live, interactive video for primary school age children from the RNLI’s central Facebook page (

It’s the first in a series about water safety that we hope to continue for the foreseeable future, while children are unable to attend school.

It’ll be around 15 minutes long and our presenter will be Liam Fayle-Parr, an ex-RNLI lifeguard who is now a member of the RNLI’s Water Safety team and a dad to two young children himself.

Each week, we’ll focus on a different water safety message – this week, it’s ‘Stop and think: spot the dangers’.

We’ll be linking to some fun educational resources for families to have a go at at home afterwards too.

We know that Governmental instructions are to stay at home so with this in mind, we would like to give people ways for young people to continue to learn essential and lifesaving water safety for when the Government advise that people can resume back to normal life and may be visiting beaches."

Water Safety Wednesday will be starting today (Wednesday 1st April) at 10.15am on the RNLI’s Facebook Page
