Create a safe space to discuss sex and relationships with your secondary students using these carefully created resources

If you’re on the hunt for inspiration, then look no further than this hand-picked collection of resources, demonstrating just some of the ways teachers are tackling different topics.

The Consent Issue - Sex Educational Supplement

A survey by the Sex Education Forum found that 3 in 10 young people did not learn about consent in school. Young people also said that what they do learn tends to be too theoretical and fails to discuss real-life relationship situations. So how, what and when should we be teaching about consent in school relationships and sex education?

This second issue of the Sex Educational Supplement includes:

  • ‘take the quiz’ to help you brush up on your knowledge about consent, including legal facts
  • an exclusive interview with Dr Meg Barker, author of Rewriting the Rules
  • eight pages of lesson ideas and resources to integrate learning about consent in high quality SRE at all Key Stages.

This Sex Educational Supplement is free for members of the Sex Education Forum. If you’d like to explore membership, please visit the Sex Education Forum website.
