Teachers need to be prepared to refer pupils for one-to-one help after SRE lessons if necessary. Expert help from a trained professional, such as a school nurse, should ideally be available and learning about where pupils can get help should be included within the curriculum.
Targeted SRE for small groups of children and young people, provided by trained professionals or support staff can make it easier for some children and young people to participate and can help to address health inequalities.
Is a record made of pupils absent from SRE lessons with follow up provided?
Are pupils told about one-to-one support available after lessons?
Do pupils understand the confidentiality policy?
Is there an on-site health facility that pupils can drop-in to for confidential advice (including about sexual health)?
Are pupils aware of relevant local and national help-lines and services?
Do all school staff understand the confidentiality policy and how to refer pupils to health services and other specialist help?
Is there a need for small group or one-to-one SRE for some pupils?
