The kids were really put at ease by Amelia and Hazel. The play-dough was such a good way in to talking about a lot of the things that needed to be talked about. Seeing two whole days gave me a fantastic overview of all the topics involved and suitable progression between the year groups. The activities and discussion about consent were particularly well presented and relevant, especially for Y9s.

PARTICIPANTS' THOUGHTS:

"Inclusive language, interesting, factual, sex-positive, interactive, allowed for feeling embarrassed/uncomfortable."

"It was a safe space to discuss awkward topics and I felt able to ask questions and contribute. The facilitators were very open which made me feel comfortable. Good level of information/activities/interacting/ talking, etc."

"Making people interact with physical models instead of diagrams I think is super engaging and easier to understand.”

"I understand much more about the XX genitalia and more confident in myself to have sex and pleasurable sex."
