NSPCC Pants Rule

Dear Parents,

During the week beginning the 16th April we will be talking to the children about the NSPCC Pants Rule. During these discussions, we will aim to teach our pupils the following important safety skills without giving explicit information or telling scary stories. We will be teaching our children how to stay safe by learning the PANTS rules, which the NSPCC have developed to be like a Green Cross Code for staying safe from abuse. PANTS stands for:

Privates are private

Always remember your body belongs to you

No means no

Talk about secrets that upset you

Speak up, someone can help

Attached to this letter is an information pack produced by the NSPCC which explains in more detail about the aims of teaching children the pants rule and ways parents can have simple conversations about staying safe from abuse.

From the 16th to the 20th of April, we will be showing the pants video to the children everyday and talking to the children about what PANTS stands for.

Below is the link if you would like to have a look at the video we will be showing the children:
