Sex and relationships education in a multi-faith society often causes workers to ask, 'What should I teach?', 'Whose values?', 'How do I meet children and young people's needs without offending parents and communities?' This book outlines approaches and strategies for developing effective SRE policy and practice to help workers engage with and understand the issues, including: examples of consultation with parents, carers and the wider community; six religious and a humanist perspective on nine key topics including puberty, contraception, gender roles and homosexuality with suggested learning outcomes; an audit tool and suggested activities for developing a values framework for SRE. Faith, Values, and Sex & Relationships Education is the result of extensive consultation with religious communities, professionals working in, and supporting, schools and young people. It is aimed at teachers and all those who support teachers. The resource will also be useful for educators in other settings, including the youth service and pupil referral units.
