In Year 5, we learnt about safe and unsafe secrets in Relationships and Health Education (RHE) today.

The children worked in groups to decide whether, in different situations, it was SAFE or UNSAFE to keep the secret.

We learnt that a safe secret s is usually something we keep for a limited time, such as a surprise party or surprise present, but when the secret is revealed all or most people will be happy. Sometimes friends also ask us to keep personal things confidential, in this case we must think about whether it is safe to keep this to

Unsafe secret: this is when we are asked to keep the secret for a long time or to never tell
anyone. We may be threatened that bad things will happen if we tell. We must not keep
these secrets. The key message is ‘problems should not be secret’.
Everyone reflected thoughtfully on an important topic!
