Sex and Relationships Education for local secondary school students
Respected is a local charity set up by GP Dr Louise Parkin to deliver Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) to secondary schools in Poole, Bournemouth and the surrounding area. It is compliant with current National Curriculum and PSHE guidelines and is committed to partnering with schools in the provision of excellent SRE to local young people.
The importance of SRE was recently highlighted by Ofsted who reported that outstanding schools tend to have high quality SRE as part of an outstanding PSHE education programme. (Reference 1) Providing a holistic approach to sex and relationships, Respected aims to work alongside a school’s in-house provision and be complementary to other agencies’ schools work in this vital area.
The underlying premise of Respected is that each student is a unique and valuable individual, capable of making wise decisions when adequately informed and supported. The programme assists young people in the development of life skills, enabling them to make healthy and well informed decisions in the area of sex and relationships. It aims to boost self-esteem and empower young people to delay sexual experience until a long term loving committed relationship, ideally marriage.
Growing up is such a barbarous business, full of inconvenience… and pimples. — J.M. Barrie
