Schools and youth organisations play an important role in having a positive and sustained impact on children and young people’s health and well-being.
From September 2020, it will become statutory for all primary schools to deliver Relationships Education and for all secondary schools to be delivering Relationships and Sex Education (RSE/SRE) and both will be required to provide Health Education.
All schools are being encouraged to prepare for the changes to statutory RSE and begin delivering the new subjects as soon as they are ready.
Many schools are working to update their curriculum materials, and planning to provide training for staff in preparing for the statutory changes.
Good quality relationships, health and sex education helps children and young people to transition with confidence from childhood through adolescence into adulthood.
All children and young people need help to build their confidence, awareness and self-esteem, which will, in turn, assist them in managing and negotiating healthy and happy relationships.
We want to ensure that all teachers recognise the significant role that effective RSE can have in improving the health and well-being of children and young people and in keeping young people safe, reducing the number of teenage conceptions and rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV.
Training provided by Tough Cookies Education covers key topics from the new relationships, health and sex education guidance and support schools and teachers to be prepared and confident to provide good quality RSE.
Training can be provided in-house or from our office at Media City UK, Salford.
