Who Would You Tell?

Age Range: 5 - 16

Discuss with the children what is meant by ‘personal information’. Make a list of different types of personal information, for example:

  • First name,
  • Middle name,
  • Surname,
  • Address,
  • Home town,
  • Post code,
  • School name,
  • Age,
  • Date of Birth,
  • Family Members,
  • Friends,
  • Photos...

Discuss each of these... Could someone use them to identify / contact you?

Ask the children to write down what types of personal information they would be happy to share with different people, for example:

  • Their doctor,
  • A famous sports star,
  • Their teacher
  • Their favourite singer,
  • A taxi driver,
  • A friend's grandad.

This might also lead to discussions about people that we trust and who trust us. Is it OK to give other people's personal information away without their permission?
