Teaching sex education and puberty in primary school

Supporting you to develop and deliver robust teaching around puberty and body changes, and to introduce sex education in the primary phase.

Designed for teachers of primary learners, and primary RSE and RSHE leads, this half day remote training course 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 key stage 2 learners, and how sex education as part of RSHE provision 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 factors influencing a primary school's sex education provision, including consultation with learners, parent views, staff support needs, school values and policy
  • Participate in group activities to explore examples of teaching activities and resources to support learning about sex 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.

How to take part: This half day course will run remotely using zoom. Ticket holders will receive an email in advance of the event with the meeting ID and password. Accompanying slides are provided for delegates to keep.
