This week, Talk Time homework is I know what consent is.
Our Living and Learning lessons focus on consent this week. It’s important that our children understand what consent it and that they have the right to give or not give their consent in many situations.
For a child, there are a number of situations in which they can choose whether or not to give consent:
- having their photo taken
- sharing their work with others
- playing a game
- sharing personal information with friends
Talk to your child about when they have the right to choose whether or not to give consent and why they might choose not to in some situations. We will discuss this in class throughout the week, highlighting situations where giving consent is required.
Children have the right to change their mind.
