Keeping Our Friends Safe

Date: Monday, 03rd Oct 2022 | Category: Safeguarding in Education

We are delighted to announce the relaunch of the HSCP school primary resource, Keeping Our Friends Safe.

First developed in 2020, the resource was developed in recognition that children/peers sometimes disclose things to each other, rather than the adults around them.  It teaches children what they can do if they are concerned about a friend and prepares them in readiness for secondary school, where disclosures to friends tend to increase.

The resource comprises of two downloadable PowerPoint presentations:

The keeping Our Friends Safe resource is available on the Safeguarding in Education section of the HSCP website. It is for all Hampshire schools who have Junior age children (primarily Year 5 and 6 but can be used for Year 3 and/or 4 depending on their maturity).

It is hoped that all schools, with Junior age children, will utilise the resource as part of their ongoing safeguarding initiatives for keeping children safe.

Resources for KS3 and KS4 are in production and will be coming this academic year.
