Secondary school resources for ‘Keeping Our Friends Safe’

Date: Tuesday, 14th Nov 2023 | Category: Resources, Safeguarding in Education

A new free resource is available to all Hampshire secondary schools to support school staff with their ongoing safeguarding initiatives for keeping children safe.

The ‘Keeping Our Friends Safe’ resources have been developed by Hampshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (HSCP) in recognition that children/peers sometimes disclose to each other, rather than the adults around them.

Comprising of two downloadable PowerPoint presentations, the secondary resource educates students in Years 7 to 11, on what they can do if they are concerned about a friend. Mock scenarios are also included to encourage discussion with students and allow for further exploration of the topics.

Part 1: Keeping Our Friends Safe

Part 2: Scenarios for children to consider

The resources can be accessed and downloaded from the HSCP webpage at Safeguarding in Education. A resource for primary schools is also available on the website.
