Alright Charlie

Children in Year 5 & 6 at Hexthorpe Primary Academy participate in a 90 minute e-safety session called ‘Alright Charlie?’ This resource is designed for use with children aged 9-11 in primary schools and aims to highlight the warning signs of grooming in an age appropriate way.

The film below is seen through the eyes of Charlie who is groomed by Danny. The resource was designed in consultation with CSE (Child Sexual Exploitation) professionals, primary schools teachers and children in years 5 and 6 in primary schools. The resource is accessible to girls AND boys with the viewer never discovering Charlie’s gender.


We make sure children know who they can get help from including teachers, parents, carers, other safe adults and the organisations available to them (some listed below);

Basis (Girls)

NSPCC – Share Aware
