Feedback from school staff on BigTalk Education's Growing Up Safe relationship and sex education programme

"This is our second year with the programme and we wanted to roll this out across the whole school. The sessions were thoroughly informative dealing with issues sensitively but openly. The programme covered a lot of ground effectively. Our children are now confident, knowledgeable and will hopeful grow to be respectful adults once again, a great job. Thank you for spending the day with us."

Really informative session for Year 3, delivered in a nice age appropriate way. Reinforced e-safety messages that we teach in school.” 

Aimee Benson

Assistant Head and Year 3 Class Teacher, Licoln Gardens

"The materials used are at an informative level, without being inappropriate. The language used by the team was at the children's' level so they were able to understand. The children were put at ease, to answer and ask questions. The section on reproduction was very well discussed and paced, to inform the children about sexual relationships, as too were the puberty and period sections. Very good tutors!"
