The Programme has a ‘pick ‘n’ mix’ content which includes age appropriate information, activities and facilitated discussion about topics which are often perceived as ‘sensitive’, related to social media, cyber safety, on-line imagery (pornography), teen lifestyle & beliefs including friendship and respectful relationships. We also have ‘standardised programmes‘ i.e. a Yr 5/6 programme: just ask us for a breakdown of what the standardised programmes include per year group. Upon booking Nest will connect with your own school supports and resources as well as supplying resources to students at the class. Nest support schools in ensuring a safe school culture and are available for assistance in formulating policy and procedure.
