Relationships and Sex Education

A range of resources, including lesson plans and activity ideas, have been developed to enable you to deliver good quality RSE in school. If you are signed up to Manchester Healthy Schools you can log in and download our free primary resource Growing and Changing Together or our secondary safeguarding resource, I Matter which can be delivered in school.

Schools not signed up to Manchester Healthy Schools can still access national reports and guidance which we hope will be useful to improve RSE and safeguarding in school.


If you are struggling to find a particular resource, please do get in touch to let us know: healthyschool.training@cmft.nhs.uk
