School leaders and teachers are mostly aware of the importance of relationships and sex education, but many lack the confidence and knowledge of how to deliver quality RSE. With these barriers in mind, Tes and DO..RSE for schools have joined forces to provide secondary teachers with the tools to deliver fresh and up-to-date RSE. From guidance on how to approach challenging topics to busting myths and tackling misconceptions, RSE specialists offer their advice and expertise to help you equip students with the knowledge they need to become confident and clued-up young people.

What is DO? DO… is a platform developed by leading UK RSE experts and supported by Durex to address the need for quality RSE in schools. DO… provides expert-led support and resources to facilitate the teaching of inclusive RSE in schools.

How we feel about ourselves and our relationships, let's start with you - Lesson plan 1

How we feel about ourselves can have a huge effect on how we have (or don’t have) relationships with people. If we regularly feel ‘not good enough’ or invisible or rejected, then we may not be great at looking after ourselves and those around us. This can place us in relationships or encounters which may neglect our needs, rather than take care of them. This is at the core of many issues in relationships and sex.

Finding the right balance.

Although they value it, young people consistently say that their relationships and sex education was too much about safer sex and not enough about relationships, emotions and themselves. Safer sex is an important topic but it’s important that it doesn’t overwhelm a balanced programme.
