Growing Up and Changing
The documents below tell you about what behaviours are normal and expected as your child develops sexually, and when you might be concerned.
There are two leaflets, one for children under 5 and one for 5-11. If you do have any concerns, speak to a member of staff.
The PANTS rule
We teach children the PANTS rule for keeping themselves safe:
Privates are private
Always remember- your body belongs to you
No means no
Talk about secrets that upset you
Speak up, someone can help
We try to give children the confidence and vocabulary to talk about things they are not comfortable with. There are more details of how we approach this in our Sex and Relationships policy, found in the Key Information - Policies section of this site.
Here is a link to the NSPCC website where you can learn more.
Staying safe on-line is an increasing risk that faces our children. The ease of access to the internet through phones, tablets, laptops, games consoles etc opens up a huge world of learning but the potential to expose them to peer on peer cyber-bullying, grooming, child sexual exploitation (CSE) and other risks.
To help our parents work with us to keep children safe we have create a webpage specifically about e-safety.
