Good and Bad Secrets - Age 5-7

Secrets can be good or bad and children need to learn the difference. One of the topics covered in KS1 PSHE lessons is the importance of not keeping adults’ secrets, unless those secrets are “good” ones. In this quiz, written specifically for children in years 1 and 2, we look at a selection of secrets and find out which ones are “good” and which are “bad”.

A secret is something only you, or you and a few other people, know. Some secrets are good – like when you are arranging a surprise party, or if you have bought somebody a present and don’t want them to know what it is.

Some secrets are not good though. When people try to hide things that are wrong, or things that could be dangerous. If you are ever asked to keep a “bad” secret then make sure you tell either your teacher or your parents.

1.
If you were playing wrestling with an older child and they touched you in a private place, then told you not to tell anybody, would that be a good secret or a bad one?
Good
Bad
That depends
Both
Certain parts of your body – the ones beneath your underwear – are private. Nobody should touch you there. Tell your parents as soon as you can if this happens
2.
Your neighbour asks you to go into their house. You say no, and they say they will give you some sweets if you don’t tell anyone. Is this a good secret or a bad one?
Good
Bad
That depends
Both
If a neighbour asks you to go anywhere with them, and your parents don’t know about it, you should always say no. You should also tell your parents about what happened
3.
You are playing with your friend when you see bruises on their body. They tell you that their dad hits them sometimes but ask you not to tell anyone. Is this a good secret or a bad one?
Good
Bad
That depends
Both
Nobody should hit us - even our parents. You might not want to break your friend’s trust but you should tell your teacher, parents or other responsible adult to help your friend
4.
Your friend tells you about something that happened to them long ago and asks you to keep it secret. Is this a good secret or a bad one?
Good
Bad
That depends
Both
It would depend on what the secret was. Sometimes it is hard to know whether you should tell people about a secret or not. If you are ever in any doubt then tell either your teacher or your parents
5.
Your teacher asks you to stay after class to decorate the room for a surprise activity after break. She asks you not to tell anybody. Is this a good secret or a bad one?
Good
Bad
That depends

Surprises need to be kept secret so that they are not spoiled
6.
Your brother is scared to go to the dentist. Your mum is taking him but pretending that she is taking him to the swimming baths. She tells you not to tell him the truth. Is this a good secret or a bad one?
Good
Bad
That depends

Sometimes it is not easy to tell whether a secret is good or bad. It is usually a bad thing to lie to people, but then your mother knows what is best for your brother. So the secret could be seen as good or bad

8.
Your grandmother gives you a box and asks you to hide it as it contains a present for your grandfather. Is this a good secret or a bad one?
Good
Bad
That depends

We want to keep presents secret until it is time to give them so hiding one for your grandmother would be a good secret

A surprise party has been organised for your friend on his birthday. You have been told not to let them know. Is this a good secret or a bad one?
Good

Surprise parties have to be kept secret, otherwise they will not be surprises anymore
10.
At break time an older boy hits you and warns you not to tell anybody or he will hit you again. Is this a good secret or a bad one?

This is bullying. If you are bullied you should tell an adult straight away so that they can make it stop
