We can help you fulfil the UK curriculum

Below are all the parts of PSHE guidance (in Relationships and Sex Education) that we cover with our presentation. See below this for how we tick the computing curriculum as well.


Anything in red are topics we brush upon, however, if you require, we can focus on them more.

By the end of Primary School children should know:

  • that people sometimes behave differently online, including by pretending to be someone they are not

  • that the same principles apply to online relationships as to face-to-face relationships, including the importance of respect for others online including when we are anonymous

  • the rules and principles for keeping safe online, how to recognise risks, harmful content and contact, and how to report them

  • how to critically consider their online friendships and sources of information including awareness of the risks associated with people they have never met

  • what sorts of boundaries are appropriate in friendships with peers and others (including in a digital context)

  • about the concept of privacy and the implications of it for both children and adults; including that it is not always right to keep secrets if they relate to being safe

  • that each person’s body belongs to them, and the differences between appropriate and inappropriate or unsafe physical, and other, contact (we cover by referring to PANTS rule)

  • how to respond safely and appropriately to adults they may encounter (in all contexts, including online) whom they do not know

  • how to recognise and report feelings of being unsafe or feeling bad about any adult

  • how to ask for advice or help for themselves or others, and to keep trying until they are heard,

  • how to report concerns or abuse, and the vocabulary and confidence needed to do so

  • where to get advice, for example family, school or other sources

By the end of Secondary School children should know:

  • how to determine whether other children, adults or sources of information are trustworthy, judge when a family, friend, intimate or other relationship is unsafe (and to recognise this in others’ relationships), how to seek help or advice, including reporting concerns about others if needed

  • the characteristics of positive and healthy friendships, in all contexts including online, such as:

    1. trust, respect, honesty, kindness, generosity, boundaries, privacy, consent and the management of conflict

    2. reconciliation and ending relationships, this includes different (non-sexual) types of relationship

  • practical steps they can take in a range of different contexts to improve or support respectful relationships

  • that some types of behaviour within relationships are criminal, including violent behaviour and coercive control

  • what constitutes sexual harassment and sexual violence and why these are always unacceptable

  • their rights, responsibilities and opportunities online, including that the same expectations of behaviour apply in all contexts, including online

  • about online risks, including that any material someone provides to another has the potential to be shared online and the difficulty of removing potentially compromising material placed online

  • not to provide material to others that they would not want shared further and not to share personal material which is sent to them

  • what to do and where to get support to report material or manage issues online

  • the impact of viewing harmful content

  • that sharing and viewing indecent images of children (including those created by children) is a criminal offence which carries severe penalties including jail
