Schools can sign up now for updates from a new project seeking to discover and spread innovative approaches to teaching children about puberty. The Sex Education Forum and the Wellcome Trust has launched Prepared for Puberty and is working with six primary schools in England to pilot new and creative approaches.

All the schools will involve parents in the project and will ensure that the children are consulted about what they need to learn. The teachers leading the projects are being asked to seek inspiration from the arts and science to design creative and engaging lessons.

Lucy Emmerson, co-ordinator of the Sex Education Forum, said: “Through the Prepared for Puberty project, we want to nurture ingenious and inventive teaching practice and then to share the results nationally so that all primary schools can benefit from fresh approaches to this vital topic and thus better support children’s health and wellbeing.

“With children now expected to learn in year 5 about the changes experienced at puberty in national curriculum science, there is a vital opportunity for every school to get to grips with this topic.”
