A webcam is a digital video device commonly built into a computer. Webcams can now be found on most phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers.

  • Remote learning online (Covid-19)
  • Using video calls between classmates can also make group projects much easier (secondary school)
  • Privacy settings can stop other people from seeing your picture (always get consent before posting a picture of someone online)

PrivoeDisadvantages of using a webcam

  • Hackers can hack your webcam and control it (they can see you)
  • Sometimes when people meet strangers in chat rooms, they may move the conversation in a video chat – this can be dangerous (online predators) and you should consult with your parents. 
  • Young children may be tricked into conducting inappropriate activities with or sending inappropriate pictures to strangers. 
  • Abusers may threaten to send images, video or copies of conversations to friends or family

General guidance

  • Only use a webcam with people you know
  • Tell your adult immediately if you see anything you are unhappy with.
  • Always ask permission before you

LI: To extend my thinking through discussion

So that I can develop my understanding of ‘consent’

WMAG:

  • Good speaking and listening skills
  • Good concentration
  • Questions relating to topic
  • Confidence to contribute to discussion
  • Share ideas that are important 
  • Show respect at all times 

Introduction to lesson 

You will have a discussion around one of our school rules “keeping hands and feet to ourselves” and thinking about risky and negative relationships including bullying. 

Children to have a discussion with a parent/carer at home

Teaching

Explain what is meant by ‘consent’, and what this means within healthy relationships. The definition of consent is the permission given for something. 

Consent is defined as an agreement made by someone with the freedom and ability to decide something. Under the law, it is the person seeking consent who is responsible for ensuring that these conditions are met. 

Consent has to be given freely and no one can be made to consent to something. It’s not consent if someone does something because they feel they have to. 

Consent is a word that means to agree to something, to allow something to happen, or to give your permission for something.  And if someone doesn’t have consent that means they don’t agree, they don’t want something to happen or they don’t give their permission.

Consent applies to all of us in lots of different ways.  You probably need a parent’s consent to stay out late, you might need a friend’s consent to borrow something of theirs and you definitely need consent to touch someone.

Explain that every action has consequences – an effect on something or someone. Consequences can either be positive or negative, and can have a lasting impact on people’s lives. Physical closeness without consent can have extremely damaging consequences for both people involved. 

Remind children that one of our school rules are

‘Keep your hands and feet to yourself’.

Description of activity

What does it mean to give consent?

How do you ask for consent?
