Sex-education pioneer Dylis Went joins headteachers from three primary schools in a discussion on the difficulties and controversies surrounding sex and relationship education, in this video for nursery and primary staff.
The discussion starts with the headteachers outlining their policies and the level to which they involve parents in sex-education decisions. One question quickly dominates the conversation: how should sex education respond to the sexual imagery that children are subjected to every day?
The conversation then highlights the difficulties and controversies surrounding sex and relationship education, and illustrates how mainstream schools can learn from special schools in developing policies.
