Summary of task

The class explored different scenarios where personal safety may be at risk and investigated a range of strategies that could be implemented to minimise risk to personal safety, remove themselves from unsafe situations and report inappropriate behaviour.

The students were asked to complete a worksheet in class at the end of the unit of work to ascertain their level of understanding of the situations and strategies for reducing risk and promoting personal safety.

This work was undertaken within the context of mandated child safety curriculum and school processes. The teacher took care to ensure students understood the importance of reporting any inappropriate behaviour to trusted adults until someone listens.
