Sex and Relationship Education

Share this page

While schools may involve a range of individuals and agencies in their health education programme, we employ a team of three registered nurses as Sexual Health and Relationship Educators known as SHARE.

  • What we do

    • Our role is to offer advice and support to education staff in planning and implementing the schools and colleges Sex and Relationship education programme. The service delivers sessions in the schools from year 5 to year 13 and to some students at the College of Further Education. For information on our staff members and which schools we work with, please download the document from this page.
  • The service provides:

    • SHARE provides
      • A resource centre for all PSHE and citizenship needs that are related to Sex and Relationship Education and growing up.
      • Advice and support to all staff and parents in dealing with Sex and Relationship Education and young people.
      • Provide in-service training for all staff.
      • Provide presentations for parents evenings
  • Our Aims

    • The Sexual Health and Relationship Education Service aims to ensure that every pupil/student within the education system in Guernsey receives a programme of Sex and Relationship Education.  This will provide the individual with the necessary skills, attitudes and knowledge to make healthy, safe and informed decisions in relation to their personal and sexual health.           
  • Why does Sex and Relationship Education matter?

    • Our children learn about sex and relationships from the very youngest age, even if we don't talk with them.  Some of the things they learn are incorrect, confusing and frightening.  In a world where sex is used to sell things from food to fast cars, and celebrities' lives become everyone's business, we should talk to our children to help them make sense of it all. 
  • Parents and sex and relationship education [SRE]

    • As a parent/carer you are the key person for your child's learning about sex and relationships.  Schools should always work in partnership with parents/carers.  You need to know that the school's SRE programme will complement your role and support you as sex educators of your child. 
  • Important

    • Effective sex and relationships education does not encourage early sexual experimentation.  It should teach young people to understand human sexuality and to respect themselves and others.  It enables young people to mature, to build up their confidence and self esteem and understand the reasons for delaying sexual activity.  It builds up knowledge and skills which are particularly important today because of the many different and conflicting pressures on young people.      
  • Leaflets

    • Information about lesson plans from Years 5 to 11 are available to download along with further information about SHARE and what the Service does, Leaflets for parents of Primary and Secondary children are available on request from the service

 Please take a look at these videos which may help you explain growing up and puberty to your child. We use the videos in our lessons with Year 6 pupils. There is also a video from the NSPCC about Preventing Child Sexual Abuse
