My Circles and Me Setting Boundaries for Personal Space

My Circles and Me Setting Boundaries for Personal Space by Exciting Teacher

‘My Circles and Me’ is a resource that can be used to support children and young people with being able to create personal boundaries for safer relationships.

This resource will help to support teaching about respecting privacy and boundaries. It can also be used to spark a discussion about information sharing about ourselves at different levels, e.g. personal information and who we share that with. 

This is an introductory resource for explaining privacy and appropriate physical touch. It should not be taught as a stand-alone worksheet and should be accompanied by a class discussion where possible.

How could this resource be used?

  • To support exploring privacy, information sharing and appropriate physical touch.
  • To support with building safer relationships.
  • To support a child 1:1.
  • To support all children as part of a class-based discussion.
