Abstract

This paper explores the sensitive, and little- researched area of effective means for communicating the issues surrounding child protection and child safety to primary school aged children. Using drama as an innovative medium, the paper demonstrates that children can develop strategies for recognizing and addressing inappropriate touch. Emphasis was placed on how this project could be embedded within the PSHE curriculum of participating schools and highlighted the need for schools, health promotion agencies, local education authorities and government departments to address this issue.
