It’s Not OK helps children and young people aged 11+ recognise concerning behaviour and identify characteristics of positive relationships. The lesson plans, films and accompanying activities cover what behaviour to look out for and how to respond to it.

The materials can form part of a school’s teaching for personal development and mutual understanding (PDMU) (Northern Ireland);personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) (England);and personal and social education (PSE) (Wales and Scotland). The lesson plans can be adapted for use with other audiences and can be delivered in schools or community settings.

It’s Not OK reinforces the importance of building and maintaining positive relationships and recognising and responding to behaviour relating to:

  • online safety
  • grooming
  • sexting
  • harmful sexual behaviour
  • child sexual abuse
  • child sexual exploitation

The films have a suggested lesson plan with activities for young people to complete to help them understand the issues that are raised
