The NSPCC’s Impact and Evidence insights series features a blog introducing a new resource to help schools teach relationships and sex education (RSE).
The resource – Making sense of relationships – includes lesson plans for teachers spanning Key Stages 2, 3 and 4 (age 10-16).
Age-appropriate lessons cover topics including:
- transition to secondary school;
- online safety and online friendships;
- sexualised behaviour;
- unhealthy relationships;
- and sharing sexual images.
The resource includes a guide for teachers on creating a safe learning environment for the lessons, what to do if they receive a disclosure and where young people can go for further help.
