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."Amma Shaw
"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!"Tracy Brown
"One of the best talks on this subject area I have experienced in my teaching career. The instructors were very relaxed and this created a relaxed and open environment."Mrs C Keel
"High quality delivery which is completely age appropriate, also includes e-safety, transgender, gay, lesbian – essential knowledge."Laura Brough
Feedback from parents on BigTalk Education's Growing Up Safe relationship and sex education programme
"With our two boys I have been concerned about talking to them as we are a same sex couple, but now I feel supported by the school and have a great book resource. Thank you."

"Great talk, beforehand I was unsure how much they should know at such young age, and was worried they were expected to know more. I’m very reassured now that the delivery of this information will be informed and appropriate and I am now prepared for any questions that will arise from the classroom talk."
April 2018Lisa Timms
"I think this is fantastic. The age appropriateness makes it not OTT but gives them the right information which is so important."
September 2018Hannah Crosbie
"Great idea, this should've been implemented years ago! Nice, relaxed delivery, very good!"
