Resources: Staying safe – avoiding risk taking

The aim of this section is for pupils to consider a range of situations that they may encounter. The scenarios offer ways of avoiding problems or getting out of awkward situations and how to deal with peer pressure.

This section also deals with the important concept of balancing enjoyment and having a good time versus it all going wrong. Two worksheets allow discussion on ‘How much is too much?’ One is visual rich (SEN) and the second more detailed. Lesson plans include: How much is too much? Planning a party; Just a few drinks (based on BBC films); Good friends? and What would you say?
