The Real Love Rocks resources support the teaching of difficult RSHE topics including consent, grooming, technology, bullying, pornography, sexual harassment, and appropriate and inappropriate relationships.

The resource has been created by charity Barnardo’s and comes after figures from the Internet Watch Foundation revealed that last year was the highest year on record for online child sexual abuse.

Real Love Rocks was first launched in 2014 but has now been updated to reflect and raise awareness of different types of abuse and exploitation that children and young people may experience.

These include child sexual abuse, child sexual exploitation, criminal exploitation, radicalisation and extremism.

This edition, which offers support for both primary and secondary lessons, emphasises the importance of emotional regulation and creating a support network of safe and trusted people. There are also sections about developing kindness, understanding and empathy for both themselves and others.
