Laying the Foundations is the one-stop resource for running sex and relationships education (SRE) in primary schools.
Providing step-by-step guidance on implementing SRE using a whole-school approach, it outlines good practice in developing an SRE policy, as well as effective planning, delivery and assessment of SRE education, including guidance and ready-to-use lesson plans.
Laying the Foundations adopts an approach to SRE which brings together the biological and social aspects. It focuses on learning about bodies, reproduction and puberty within the context of emotions, relationships, healthy choices and equality. It also provides the background to future work on sexual and reproductive health and so helps to prepare children for adulthood.
Key features include:
• clear advice on SRE policy and delivery
• case study examples of practice
• activities to assess knowledge and evaluate teaching approaches
• tried and tested lesson plans, for KS1 and 2
• a range of Key Questions for each year
