NEW Guidance from WSCB: Healthy relationships, a whole school approach

Is a document that has been produced by Worcestershire Safeguarding Children Board (WSCB) to support schools to have access to a `whole school approach' to educate young people, parents, staff and governors in what constitutes a healthy relationship and help prevent children being exploited.

Each school, (and child), is different and there is a lot of information and resources available on the internet. This document recommends those resources which WSCB has endorsed. It covers a range of educational resources which seek to help children and young people feel more confident in making relationships raising awareness of some of the pitfalls and tactics used by those that seek to exploit them.
