NSPCC - Talk Pants

Talk PANTS & Join Pantosaurus - The Underwear Rule | NSPCC

On Monday, next week, we will be discussing the NSPCC’s Underwear Rule in Assembly. During this time we will aim to teach our pupils the following important safety skills without giving explicit information or telling scary stories. We will be teaching our pupils the NSPCC’s Underwear Rule, using the ‘PANTS’ acrostic, which is like a green cross code for staying safe from sexual abuse. 

PANTS stands for:  

Privates are private 

Always remember your body belongs to you  

No means no  

Talk about secrets that upset you  

Speak up, someone can help 

The assembly  will be delivered in a way that’s fully age appropriate. This includes: 

  •  “appropriate” and “inappropriate” touching  

  • your child’s right to say no to things that make them feel upset or uncomfortable  

  • who your child can turn to if they ever feel upset or worried.

Reception children will have this message delivered to them as a year group in the classroom with their class teachers.

If you would like to know more about the NSPCC’s campaign and see how you can help keep your children safe in partnership with Merley First School, more information can be found at
