Child Sexual Exploitation

A resource package aimed at encouraging children to recognise child sexual exploitation.


We recognise that as part of a PSHE agenda, CSE forms part of the broader context of sex and relationships education carried out within schools. No standalone package can encompass that remit within a standard 60-minute lesson. This package is tailored to exploitative sexual relationships and assumes other lessons about healthy relationships have taken place beforehand.

This resource has been produced by Avon and Somerset but it draws significantly from the National Crime Agency’s (NCA) Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) ‘Exploited’ materials (produced with input from a range of national partners including the NSPCC, Brook, the Sex Education Forum and Barnado’s). Materials from other police forces have also been included where they represent good practice.
