EDUCATION RESOURCES

Policing: Lesson materials

Added: Category: ASB, Law, Violence, Youth Justice | Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4

The following lesson plans and resources hold the PSHE Association Quality Mark for effective practice in PSHE education. They have been created by national bodies and government departments to address a range of issues related to crime and young people. We are highlighting these materials so that our network of PSHE teachers have a range of high quality lesson plans to use, and to provide models of good practice for police staff.
Includes: Disrespect Nobody, Run Hide Tell, Gangs: Managing Risks and Staying Safe, Anti Fraud Education, #Knifefree

Radicalisation

Added: Category: Prevent | Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4

The pack is led by a power-point presentation, with video. A set of guidance notes leads the facilitator through the power-point presentation and contains suggestions for class activities. The Counter Terrorism and Security Act of 2015 places a duty on certain bodies to have due regard to the need to prevent terrorism. This package has been produced by Avon and Somerset Constabulary in partnership with Bristol City Council as part of their Trading with Schools materials and represents a partnership approach. The package is not specific to Bristol and may be used in any area. This lesson plan is written by qualified teachers in Bristol. The Home Office have listed it on their list of resources for countering radicalisation (Prevent) and it is listed with the Time Education Supplement website.

Sexting

Added: Category: Health, Online | Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4

This resource has been produced by Avon and Somerset but is based on the Home Office Disrespect Nobody campaign and also draws on resources produced by Childnet. The materials have been combined to produce a package which takes into account the PSHE agenda while also providing a police perspective.

Sexually Exploitative Relationships (Child Sexual Exploitation)

Added: Category: Safeguarding | Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4

We recognise that as part of a PSHE agenda, CSE forms part of the broader context of sex and relationships education carried out within schools. No standalone package can encompass that remit within a standard 60-minute lesson. This package is tailored to exploitative sexual relationships and assumes other lessons about healthy relationships have taken place beforehand. This resource has been produced by Avon and Somerset but it draws significantly from the National Crime Agency’s (NCA) Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) ‘Exploited’ materials (produced with input from a range of national partners including the NSPCC, Brook, the Sex Education Forum and Barnado’s). Materials from other police forces have also been included where they represent good practice.

Share Aware

Added: Category: Online | Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2

The Share Aware teaching resources and lesson plans have been created to provide straightforward, no-nonsense advice which will untangle the web, and let you know how, as a teacher or practitioner, you can show your pupils ways to be to be safe online. The central message is that the internet is a great place for children to be and being Share Aware makes it safer. These teaching resources support you to deliver the ‘stay safe’ messages to pupils. They’ve been written in conjunction with teachers, producers of educational resources and experts from the NSPCC – and have been piloted in primary schools to make sure that pupils respond to them.

Share Aware resources for schools and teachers

Added: Category: Online | Key Stage 2

Increasing numbers of primary school age children are known to be sharing personal images of themselves. This video would be suitable to children in KS2 who you might be concerned are at risk. Alex’s friend shares a picture of Alex with his friend Katie for a joke, but Katie shares it with lots of people online leading to Alex getting bullied and being upset. There is a cartoon video and lesson plans with activities, extension work, homework and a slideshow presentation which is available here. 

Staff Led Parent Online Safety Presentation

Added: Category: Online | Parents

This online safety presentation for parents is designed to be delivered by the online safety lead, or designated staff member, in your school, organisation or child care setting. Online safety is a whole community issue and this presentation is designed to improve parents’ knowledge and understanding of the risks their child may face online. It also provides practical strategies and advice to help parents support their child online and signposts to further resources and reporting sites which may be of use.

STAR toolkit (Childnet)

Added: Category: Online | SEN

The STAR toolkit consists of practical advice and 15 teaching activities to help educators explore online safety with young people with autism spectrum disorders in Key Stage 3 and 4. The sections consist of Safe, Trust, Action and Respect. All sections feature the concept of friendship and have a focus on finding the balance between online and offline interaction. Most of the activities are not complete lessons, but starter activities or similar.

Street Crime

Added: Category: Law, Violence | Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4

This is an educational resource for professionals working with young people throughout the UK. It provides exercises on a range of crime types that professionals can use to challenge young people’s perceptions, stimulate debate and encourage good citizenship.

The Adventures of Kara, Winston and the SMART Crew

Added: Category: Online | Key Stage 2

These cartoons illustrate 5 online safety SMART rules and include a real life SMART Crew of young people, who guide the cartoon characters in their quest, and help them make safe online decisions.

The Real Story (CSE and Sexual Health resource pack)

Added: Category: Health | Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4

This resource from Barnados has been designed and formulated to equip facilitators to effectively engage young people aged 13 and above in the subject area. The short films have been designed to enable young people to discuss the issue whilst protecting them from personal disclosure in a safe and secure learning environment.

Trust Me: a critical thinking resource

Added: Category: Online | Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4

The main aim of the Trust Me resource is to educate young people around inaccurate and pervasive information that they might come across online. The primary and secondary education packs contain lesson plans, activities and presentations covering content and contacts online and the secondary pack also looks at propaganda.

Weapons

Added: Category: Violence | Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4

Weapon attacks involving young people hit the headlines too frequently. Here we explore the wider social, physical and physiological effects of this type of criminality.
