Celebrating relationships and sex education

27 June 2024

The theme for this year’s RSE day is Embracing Change! Derby and Derbyshire will be celebrating relationships and sex education all week (24 -30 June 2024).

Leading up to and during RSE week, we encourage partners to use the resources on the RSE day website which includes logos, social media assets and downloadable and printable activities for all ages, with specific activities for primary aged children, secondary aged children and families.

Areas to explore under this theme:

  • Transition to different stages of life or education
  • Strategies for coping with change
  • Puberty and body changes
  • Grief and loss
  • Changing relationships 

The resources on the RSE day website link to these areas.
