Lockers is an information and education resource. It assists schools in coping with and preventing the sharing of explicit self-generated images of minors. Lockers is the first Irish education resource of its kind to tackle the sensitive subject of sexting. Intended for use with Junior Cycle SPHE classes, the education resource is supported by two newly developed animations and six lesson plans. Lockers was developed to support schools as they address the issue of non-consensual sharing of intimate images (sometimes referred to as ‘revenge porn’), in the context of the SPHE class. The resource aims to foster empathy, respect and resilience and to help young people understand the consequences of their actions.

How it maps to the curriculum


Strand: Personal Safety

Strand unit: Recognising Unsafe Situations

Suggestions for use: This resource is mapped to the Junior Cycle SPHE curriculum and is intended for use with 2nd and 3rd year students, as part of the RSE programme. However, this curriculum mapping shouldn’t be limiting. It is expected that the resource could be adapted for use with Senior Cycle students and particularly with Transition Year students. Certain activities could be used in English media studies classes and in religion classes.
