Sex and gender are delicate and nuanced issues for all of us and can be intimidating topics to teach. This practical, empathetic book aims to dispel some of the uncertainties that many teachers have and empower them to lead inclusive, age-appropriate lessons in primary and secondary schools.
Taking an approach that celebrates the individual identity of all learners, and underpinned by an awareness of the complexity of language around these topics, this book offers a careful evaluation of the 2020 Relationship and Sex Education policy for schools in England, and how schools can offer intelligent, socially responsible, sex education that goes beyond simply meeting statutory requirements.

'There has never been a more important time to help teachers explore the complexities of teaching sex and relationship education that truly represents the diverse nature of the families and society which young people inhabit. This book will be an invaluable aid to teachers in confidently having sensitive conversations about gender and sexual diversity.' -- Dominic Davies 'Informative, helpful and packed with practical advice for all Key Stages, this is a timely and important book.' -- Professor Dame Alison Peacock 'This is an important book in the too-often overlooked field of gender and sexuality education for young people. If appropriately applied, it should lead to a quiet revolution in the physical and mental health of young people who have so unreasonably been disenfranchised by the lack of quality, accessible information in this vital area.' -- Professor Christina Richards
