The NSPCC Learning website has fantastic resources for schools and safeguarding resources.
Schools play an essential role in protecting children from abuse. They have regular contact with children and young people so are in a strong position to identify signs of abuse and neglect.
All organisations that work with or come into contact with children should have safeguarding policies and procedures to ensure that every child, regardless of their age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation, has a right to equal protection from harm.
NSPCC training courses to help you ensure your school environment is safe for every child.
We all teach children various safety messages when they are growing up but how do you talk to them about sexual abuse without using scary words or making them feel worried?
This can be a challenge for parents, carers and teachers which is why the NSPCC launched a campaign in 2012 called Talk PANTS. The Underwear Rule (also referred to as PANTS) is a simple way to have age-appropriate conversations with children to help you keep them safe from sexual abuse.
Let's talk PANTS
With the help of NSPCC's friendly dinosaur Pantosaurus, PANTS is a simple way to talk to children about staying safe with a variety of resources available such as lesson plans, guidance, media, and parent resources.
