Special Schools - Sex and Relationship Education

Description

Shepherd School in Nottingham has been endorsed by Ofsted as a site of best practice in delivering Sex and Relationship Education to young people with learning difficulties.

The pioneering approach to sex and relationship education is explored, aiming to stimulate debate among professionals about delivering an SRE curriculum for pupils with severe and profound learning difficulties.

Headteacher David Stewart aims to ensure that young people with learning difficulties are safe but that they are also able to enjoy happy sexual lives and healthy relationships. Controversially, David argues SRE needs to begin when pupils are as young as five.

The school believes that the rights and choices involved in SRE form an important part of the citizenship curriculum, and that concessions must not be made because the individual has a learning difficulty.
