This programme helps children to stay safe in their relationships with others both on and off line.
The programme uses age appropriate drama and discussion workshops to support children in learning about safe contact with others. Using the NSPCC’s PANTS rule as the central theme the Safe Team teaches the children about safe and unsafe secrets and body contact as well as recognising the feelings that may occur when you feel unsafe. The programme explores difficult topics such as domestic abuse and child sexual abuse and exploitation in a safe and gentle way.MAKE ENQUIRY
