Helping Schools deliver Relationship and Sex Education

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;
  • consent;
  • 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.
