Keeping Safe

You can be hurt or harmed by what people do or say to you.

So always be a good friend and:-

  • Listen to each other;
  • Respect everyone as an individual;
  • Respect their wishes - Don’t gossip;
  • Be sensitive to other people’s likes and dislikes;
  • Encourage your friends to feel good - Don’t put them down;
  • Support each other:
    • By sharing your problems;
    • By talking to someone you trust; and
    • By being a good friend.

If someone hurts you remember it’s not your fault.  This is what you should do about it:-

  • Tell a teacher or other adult you trust;
  • Think about what you want to say;
  • Don’t give up. Keep telling someone until they hear; and
  • Think about yourself and your rights.

If a friend tells you they are being harmed you should:-

  • Listen to them;
  • Say you want to help;
  • Tell an adult you both trust. Some things can’t be kept secret; and
  • Respect your friends wishes.

If you suspect a friend is being harmed then you should:-

  • Listen to what they have to say; and
  • Talk to an adult you can trust about your concerns.
  • Let your friend know that you are there for them!
