Relationships and Sex Education

News

During the 2014-2015 academic year we have been working hard on revising our materials and piloting new resources. 

This has culminated in two major achievements: the PSHE Association has awarded the SRE Project their Quality Assurance Mark for both the ApauseToo Adult-led Resources and the Apause Peer-led programme.

These award require rigorous evaluation of the resources against a range of best-practice criteria. In one sense, we shouldn't be surprises that our work has been acknowledged in this way.  We have an excellent track record of providing well evaluated programmes to schools in England, Wales and Ireland.

However, this generation of resources meets several challanges.  

Keeping prices down - the students resources are laminated for multiple use and the teachers guidelines are printed on a durable paper. 

Supporting developing classroom practice - while the resources and 'teacher guidelines' can be used on a 'grab-and-go' basis,  with a little preparation and practice the less experienced teacher soon discovers they can manage quite well without adhering slavishly to the scripts.

For accomplished  teachers - the  'lesson plan'  is much more schematic and enables the more accomplished teacher to work creatively and spontaneously with the resources.

A 'performative' experience - the whole programme gives primacy to the students' performances. Research show that in order to influence subsequent behaviour learners need to actively engage in the social dimensions of learning.  This means interrogating normative beliefs and personal practices, discussion, debate, reading aloud, sharing a joke in the privacy of small group work, simulations, presenting role-plays and performing solutions to challenging scenarios.

In response to national concerns about internet safety and cyber bullying, we have developed two new exercises which we intend to put through the PSHE Quality Assurance Process and have available for schools by the beginning of the Autumn Term 2015. 

We are always keen to make improvements, so if any one is interested in piloting these resources for free, just contact us:
