Keeping Girls Safe in Primary: Promoting Gender Equality, Body Boundaries and Consent in the 21st Century Classroom

Each year there are about 12,000 sexual assaults against girls under the age of 18. Two thirds of our girls experience sexual harassment at school and one in four are subjected to unwanted touching. This training day complements our other safeguarding courses by looking longer term, giving you practical approaches to implement at primary level to empower girls and educate boys.

  • Teach consent without needing to use the word “sex”
  • Develop literacy and graphicacy skills to protect against objectification and exploitation
  • Safeguarding in the here-and-now

About this course

What can we do with the youngest children to teach about consent, and protect them against sexist objectification and discrimination in the future? How do we empower our girls to stay safe and educate our boys to act more appropriately, especially when the mention of “sex” is so controversial in the primary years?  

By attending this course you will:

  • Develop a primary-friendly progression for the teaching of consent
  • Unpick discrimination and bias in everyday policies and structures
  • Consider how to help your children understand what’s appropriate and ‘normal’
  • Explore ways to teach children to spot bias and objectification in words and images


  • Head teachers and senior leaders
  • Leaders of PSHE, RSHE, SMSC, wellbeing or mental health
  • English / Literacy coordinators
  • EYFS, KS1, KS2
