Everything you need to teach Body Safety, Respectful Relationships and Gender Equality to the children in your care!

This comprehensive Teacher's Resource Kit has been carefully designed to make the teaching of Body Safety, Respectful Relationships and Gender Equality to students in the first year of primary/elementary school, simple, age-appropriate and empowering.

Through the 10 Body Safety lessons the children will learn that:

  • they have rights in relation to their body
  • some parts of their body are private
  • if someone does touch their private parts, asks them to touch their private parts, shows them their private parts or shows them images of private parts that they should tell a trusted adult and keep on telling until they are believed
  • there are secrets, such as someone touching their private parts, that should never ever be kept.

In these lessons children will:

  • discuss emotions and feelings such as happy, sad, angry, worried, etc.
  • talk about what it is like to feel 'safe' and 'unsafe'
  • discuss their Early Warning Signs
  • discuss 'body boundaries', consent and respect
  • identify trusted adults that they could go to if they are feeling unsafe (a Safety Network)
  • identify all body parts, including private body parts and private zones
  • discuss secrets and surprises, and how secrets that make them feel bad or uncomfortable should never be kept.

Through the 6 Respectful Relationships and Gender Equality lessons the children will understand that:

  • empathy and kindness are crucial to a caring and compassionate world
  • respect for self, different genders, cultures and religions is crucial for a harmonious and respectful society
  • it is important to listen to and respect each other's ideas and opinions, and recognise that people see things differently
  • gender equality means equal opportunities for all genders
  • we are more the same than we are different.

In these lessons children will:

  • discuss the terms 'respect' and 'disrespect' and identify their meanings
  • explore what is the 'same' and what is 'different' between boys and girls
  • unpack the key messages of gender equality and respect in No Difference Between Us and/or Pearl Fairweather, Pirate Captain
  • identify a female role-model that they respect and why
  • start to identify the damaging language and actions associated with gender inequality.

"My year 4 team, consisting of three classes, ran the Educate2empower Body Safety program using these fantastic resources. It was absolutely the best program for these children. It dealt with confronting issues in a very positive and sensitive way. Over the year, we implemented many of the concepts and vocabularies, and found that the program made a significant and positive change to the children's behaviour and attitudes towards themselves and others."
Duncan Crowder, teacher, year 4

"Teaching children about Body Safety is (in my opinion) non-negotiable! Jayneen Sanders' fantastic Body Safety Kit is filled with age-appropriate resources and activities which make teaching this sometimes tricky subject easier for teachers. Lessons are sequential and children are empowered to know their body boundaries and learn how to speak up if they need to. Our school teaches Body Safety every year and Jayneen’s resources are an essential part of our program. The resources and activities can be used as a complete program or teachers can use the ones that meet the needs of their students or the learning focus at the time. There is simply no excuse to not teach Body Safety. Thanks Jayneen for creating these resources to support teachers to inform and empower children."
Helen Basham, Assistant Principal, Mt Evelyn Primary School
