    • that families are important for children growing up because they can give love, security and stability;
    • that others’ families, either in school or in the wider world, sometimes look different from their family, but that they should respect those differences and know that other children’s families are also characterised by love and care for them;
    • that stable, caring relationships, which may be of different types, are at the heart of happy families, and are important for children’s security as they grow up;
    • how to recognise if family relationships are making them feel unhappy or unsafe, and how to seek help or advice from others if needed.
    • the characteristics of friendships, including mutual respect, truthfulness, trustworthiness, loyalty, trust, sharing interests and experiences and support with problems and difficulties;
    • that healthy friendships are positive and welcoming towards others, and do not make others feel lonely or excluded; 
    • that most friendships have ups and downs, and that these can often be worked through so that the friendship is repaired or even strengthened, and that resorting to violence is never right.
    • practical steps they can take in a range of different contexts to improve or support respectful relationships;
    • the importance of permission-seeking and giving in relationships with friends, peers and adults.
    • what sorts of boundaries are appropriate in friendships with peers and others (including in a digital context).
