Teaching about sex education and puberty in primary RSHE

Designed for teachers of primary learners, and primary RSE and RSHE leads, this 2 hour webinar will support you to:

- Understand the requirements for teaching about the changing adolescent body in mandatory Health Education and best practice for a developmental approach

- Consider how to approach sex education with primary learners, including when that content might be introduced, what it might include, with discussion about learner needs, parent views, staff support needs, school values and policy

- Examine the cross-curricular links with National Curriculum science and Health Education across key stages 1 and 2, particularly in relation to life cycles and sexual reproduction

- Explore the use of teaching resources to support learning about conception, birth, sexual reproduction and puberty

Participants will leave with increased confidence to plan and deliver age-appropriate RSHE lessons for primary learners, example activities that you could use to explore certain RSE topics, and signposting to relevant, reliable resources.
