#LiveSkills

Added: Category: Online

#LiveSkills is a package of resources focusing on live streaming. It explores the nuanced features of live streaming, and the specific risks children and young people can face. Live streaming is increasingly becoming one of the most popular online activities for children and young people and most apps now have live streaming functions.

Alcohol, Drugs and Staying Safe

Added: Category: Drugs

This lesson plan amalgamates the Public Health England Rise Above materials on alcohol with bespoke materials provided by Avon & Somerset Police. It also looks at the factors that lead to experimentation with alcohol and drugs.

Added: Category: Online, Safeguarding

Band Runner is a fun runner-style game for 8-10 year olds on the Thinkuknow website. The game features some familiar faces: Sam, Alfie and Ellie from the Play Like Share animations are continuing their adventures and helping children to build their knowledge, confidence and skills to stay safe from sexual abuse and other risks they might encounter online.

Be internet legends

Added: Category: Online

ParentZone have worked with Google to provide a free scheme of work for KS2. Teachers can order one pack each but more than one pack per school can be ordered. The lesson plans are accredited by the PSHE Association and these are accompanied by stickers and a poster. The scheme consists of five pillars to be Sharp, Alert, Secure, Kind and Brave. The children are also encouraged to share information with parents and carers.  Schools can also request an assembly from the Google Internet Legends team by ticking a box on the order form.

Consent

Added: Category: Safeguarding

This package from Avon and Somerset Police is based on guidance from the Home Office, using the Disrespect Nobody campaign materials, but is tailored specifically to consent and sexual assault/rape, with additional input about the police. It also includes a video about the Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC), also known as ‘The Bridge’, which explains who they help and what services they provide, as we wanted young people in our force area to have access to information and support relevant to them locally, not just nationally. The lesson plan assumes that lessons about healthy relationships covering issues such as respect, trust and equality, have taken place beforehand as part of the broader PSHE curriculum taught by schools.

County Lines

Added: Category: Drugs, Violence

In 2017, the Home Office, National Crime Agency, the National Police Chief’s Council, the Children’s Society and Victim Support, as well as a number of smaller, individual organisations have all released new guidance on approaching the county lines problem as awareness around the issue continues to grow. Recognising young people at risk and intervening early is a key part of the strategy. This resource package is aimed at raising awareness about the county lines problem and helping young people to maintain resilience against becoming involved in it.

Digital resilience

Added: Category: Online

Digital resilience is a key skill that we want young people to develop. Whilst going online can be incredibly fun and enjoyable there can also be times when a young person can feel upset, not good enough or left out. These are the occasions when young people will need strategies to help themselves and also to help their friends if they are having a difficult time online. This lesson aims to look at the positive and negative experiences young people have online, consider the impact they may have and devise ways to build digital resilience.

Digital Resilience and Online Safety

Added: Category: Online

This resource has been produced by Avon and Somerset but draws heavily on resources produced by Childnet. The Childnet resources have been condensed to produce a package which takes into account the PSHE agenda but also allows time to provide a police perspective.
