Your result: doing the basics
Despite a number of requirements and statutory duties, nearly half of English secondary schools still need to improve their SRE provision.1
There is overwhelming evidence that SRE is essential to young people and society as a whole.
And we’re also in no doubt that ensuring a whole-school approach is one of the trickiest tasks many schools will face.
With DO…, an online resource specially created in association with a collaboration of SRE experts and Durex, you can transform your school’s ability to deliver open and honest SRE.
Here’s what you can do:
Your results suggest that you are doing the basics, but there is a great opportunity for you to do even more for SRE and the young people in your school. And great opportunity doesn’t need to mean vast changes. With DO…, we can help you break the task into small chunks, to improve what you have now and to help you lay the foundations for a highly effective, top quality SRE programme.
Let’s make great SRE happen for the young people in your school. For each area of the self-assessment, we have developed resources to help you.
We’ve highlighted the resources below from DO... that are most relevant to you, but there are even more on offer in the DO... Action plan toolkit.
Your result: doing well
It’s clear that you’re doing what you can to ensure that young people have access to essential information about sex and relationships.
With the right experience, information and resources, small changes in the areas highlighted by your self-assessment can help make a good SRE programme become a great SRE programme. These changes can range from small adjustments in the SRE classroom environment to ensuring a whole-school approach.
DO… can help you make great SRE happen in your school. Your responses to the self-assessment will help you evaluate key areas where you could make improvements. And once you start, you’ll begin to see real improvements in SRE that will continue to develop.

Great schools do great sex and relationships education.1
You score suggests you must be one of them, which is excellent.
You are already playing an essential role helping young people in our society access the open and honest sex and relationships education they both want and deserve. Now, just imagine how much more we could achieve for SRE in our schools with you, and others like you, leading the way.
Have a look at the DO… resources listed below. The world changes continuously, along with the needs of young people; you may find new ideas, new skills and new techniques in our DO…support that could further enhance your SRE offering. In particular, you might be able to identify key teachers within your school who have played or could play important roles in inspiring greatness in others. Also, don’t miss the chance to register your interest for our SRE teacher training roadshows, coming soon in 2016.
