Protective behaviours

Protective behaviours is about giving children the tools they need to feel safe and get help if they are in a dangerous or uncomfortable situation. We encourage you to develop a relationship with your child that encourages them to speak to you about issues and events that concern them, even if they think they will get in trouble.

The protective behaviour lesson aims to teach children that they can help to keep themselves safe and identify early warning signs of feeling unsafe. Throughout the lesson children will discuss the consequences of not trying to keep themselves safe. They will also identify the people who can help them in their personal lives and the wider community.
