Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) is essential for young people to make responsible well informed decisions about their lives. It is delivered within the framework for PSHE and the National Curriculum. The objective of SRE is to help and support young people through their physical, emotional and moral development, to live confident, healthy and independent lives.
We can support schools in the provision of some elements of their PSHE curriculum through providing a range of SRE (Sex and Relationships Education) workshops, including social media internet safety (covering sexual exploitation).
Evidence shows that students prefer to receive SRE from an outside agency rather than from school staff. Many students report that they find it embarrassing to discuss SRE topics with their teachers; they prefer to access this information from someone unrelated to school where they feel more comfortable and able to ask questions and engage in discussions.
We offer the following workshops (click on each workshop for an outline):
- Workshop 1: HIV and STI’s
- Workshop 2: Contraception & Correct Condom Use

Our staff have trained with the FPA and through the Centre for HIV & Sexual Health in Sheffield. All our workshops can be tailored to be both age appropriate.
Evidence demonstrates that students benefit more from group discussion and participation so to ensure that students get the most out of our workshops we accept a maximum of 35 students per workshop and at least 50 minutes must be allowed per workshop. As all workshops involve some group work students need to sit at a table in groups of 6 or less to fully engage with the exercises.
