This term the children will be discussing the NSPCC’s PANTS rules in our PSHE lessons. During these discussions we will aim to teach our pupils the following important safety skills without giving explicit information or telling scary stories. We will be teaching our pupils how to stay safe by learning the PANTS rules, which the NSPCC have developed to be like a Green Cross Code for staying safe from sexual abuse.
PANTS stands for:
• Privates are private.
• Always remember your body belongs to you.
• No means no.
• Talk about secrets that upset you.
• Speak up, someone can help.
The lessons will introduce a range of ideas, all delivered in a way that’s fully age-appropriate, empowering pupils without using any frightening words.
If you would like to know more about the NSPCC’s campaign and learn how you can help keep your children safe in partnership with us, more information can be found at nspcc.org.uk/pants. If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
