Resources that will be avaliable to download once registering for conference:
1. Pornography lesson toolkit
For young people, online pornography is easily accessible and often hard to avoid. Use Caz Perry’s lesson plan toolkit to encourage pupils at Key Stages 3 and 4 to think critically about porn and its impact; how does it differ from real-life intimacy?
2. RSE: it’s not just about sex!
Schools need to be aware that RSE covers more than just sex education. Charlie Roden signposts resources for some useful starting points.
3. Teaching RSE to pupils with SEND
Adele Bates shares practical advice and resources to help ensure that RSE is accessible to all pupils, including those with SEND.
