Keeping Children Safe in Education

Many of our colleagues in primary schools have been keen to know …
… how our resources support the September 2021 ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ updates, particularly the updates concerning ‘Sexual Violence and Sexual Harrassment between children’.
It’s worth noting that the main concerns of the document updates are very much linked to the safeguarding procedures, documentation and recording of incidents in schools, and training for staff. If you haven’t looked at the ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ updates yet, then you might find it useful to read in order to clarify more specifically what is being asked of schools.
How can Ten Ten Resources help you in this area?
As you’ll be aware, sex education is not statutory in primary schools. However, our Relationships and Health Education resources do help build children’s understanding of the dignity of our human bodies and our emotions, as well as how to protect and look after our bodies, and respect other people and their bodies. We have some sessions that cross over into the area of Sex Education for primary schools and therefore, these lessons require consultation with parents before being taught. You can find out more about these sessions here.
While the following list is not exhaustive, it does feature key lessons which look at topics that will help you to safeguard children in your care…
