As you become more independent it’s important to think about how to keep yourself safe and for your parents or carers to think about how to help you to be safe while supporting you to gain independence as you grow-up.
Every young person is different and every parent or carer will have their own thoughts about they are happy for you to do. It can be a bit scary as you get older as it’s harder for them to protect you.
Here are some helpful resources to help you think about how you can keep yourself safe and also how you can help your friends to stay safe. If you have any questions about safety please speak to your school nurse who can answer questions and help you to access advice and support.
