SRE and puberty workshops (sex education) can be delivered as separate gender groups or as combined sessions. The workshops are delivered in a relaxed and very informal manner while at the same time allowing the children to recognise what changes will happen and why.
They also highlight that emotional changes occur as well as physical changes during puberty/growing up. Sessions also include the importance of personal hygiene.
- Parents can be included within the separate boys and girls sessions, allowing them to share in this opportunity.

“The most useful part of today’s workshop was bonding with my daughter over an important part of her life – I feel more confident talking about growing up with my daughter”
