Engaging parents and carers

You may wish to communicate with parents and carers about the sorts of topics you will be covering when working with these resources.

Addressing sensitive issues with children

By definition, the topics covered are quite sensitive, and the children may well talk about them at home. Parents will be reassured that issues such as young carers, domestic violence and bullying will be dealt with in a child-friendly way, appropriate to their age and experience.

We've provided some guidance for teachers on a separate page about dealing with sensitive issues

We've also created a sample pro forma letter that you can use and adapt to send home to parents and carers to help explain how and why the children are using these resources.
