Based on projects undertaken by the Sex Education Forum, this resource has been developed to support primary school staff in developing SRE policy and practice.The resource includes sample lesson plans for Key Stages 1 and 2 that tie into requirements of the National Curriculum and recommendations from Ofsted. Other chapters look at policy development, planning, delivering and assessing SRE, and specific topics like reproduction, growing, feelings, keeping safe, keeping clean and healthy, friends, families, and choices and consequences.
