LGFL have produced a Tracked Changes document to help you.
There’s a person attached to every body, respect both.
Healthy relationships are all about respecting each other. You should feel loved, safe and free to be yourself.
But disrespectful and unacceptable behaviour can come in many forms. It isn’t limited to just physical behaviour; it can also go way beyond that. For example, it’s not OK for someone to try and pressure you into sending a nude pic, or to expect the same things to happen that they’ve seen in a porn film. If someone makes you do something you don’t want to, makes you feel scared, intimidated or tries controlling you, it’s not acceptable and is never OK.

'The Department for Education published their revised ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ statutory guidance on May 26th ahead of its activation on 5th September 2016. This is relevant to schools and colleges across England and introduces a number of notable changes and updates with regards online safety.
Given the guidance is 75 pages in length, SWGfL, as part of UK Safer Internet Centre, has helpfully highlighted the revised changes, together with what this may mean. Alongside most references, we have also signposted resources and services that may help. Simply skip through the Prezi to highlight the references, interpretation and associated resources.'
