It’s Pride Month where we celebrate lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer (and hopefully also asexual and intersex) folk. Drawing attention to the inequalities, prejudice, and discrimination that so so many people face is super important, and of course we shouldn’t just be doing this in June.
Today marks the end of Masturbation Month which I wish could become a more important month in the sex education calendar.
Here’s a ramble ramble about some of the materials I use in RSE together with some ideas for how to use them.
With the upcoming changes to RSE becoming a reality next year, a lot of schools will be looking to overhaul their curriculum, find some new resources, and support their staff.
For International Women’s Day we wanted to highlight some of the activities within DO… that you might find useful when teaching about sexism, societal messages about gender, and power dynamics.
We learn about love from a young age: from fairy stories, Disney films, rom-coms, pop music. These love stories are also retold through families, the people around us, religion, communities, government policy and school.
So since working on DO… RSE for Schools I’ve become even more aware that, despite relationships and sex education being such a huge topic, there is often not a lot of support out there for teachers actually delivering it.
Consultation is under way about relationships and sex education (RSE) but what does good RSE look like? Find out more about the DO… collaboration.
