1 Reflective preparation

It can be quite challenging to deal with some topics, opinions and questions that may arise in RSE. Asking your RSE coordinators to share these self-reflection exercises with your teachers is an important part of setting up a quality RSE programme. They are designed to be used ahead of the lessons, to help teachers feel more comfortable about preparing and delivering RSE. Lessons can be greatly enhanced if teachers reflect on personal feelings about sex, relationships, education and society before they enter the classroom. The skills, values and attitudes great RSE develops are essential and highly rewarding for both teachers and students.
