‘The Rights Idea?’ KS3-4 lesson plans on parental separation and children’s rights

Free-to-access two-part lesson pack from the University of Exeter, helping students to learn about changing relationships and manage the impact of parental separation.

‘The Rights Idea? lessons have been produced by academics at the University of Exeter in collaboration with The National Youth Advocacy Service (NYAS) and The National Association of Child Contact Centres (NACCC), two leading national charities working with families and young people when parents separate. The lessons draw on research by the University of Exeter indicating a strong appetite amongst young people for information on their rights and the support available under such circumstances. These materials have also achieved the Association of Citizenship Teaching (ACT) Quality Mark for Citizenship education resources.

As well as supporting the statutory Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) requirements and learning opportunities in our Programme of Study, these lessons will help students to understand and exercise their rights under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), including their rights to information, consultation and (where needed) representation when parents separate.

The pack includes PowerPoints, a teacher guide, a video and an infographic.

The University will also supply A4 and A3 laminated copies of the infographic for classroom walls free of charge on request.

This lesson pack complements the University of Exeter's ‘Working out Relationships?’ KS4 lesson plans — also quality assured l— which challenge common myths about the ‘perfect relationship’ and help manage young people’s relationship expectations.





PSHE Association Subject Specialist Elizabeth Laming says:
“We are delighted to award the Quality Mark to ‘The Rights Idea?’, which explores the rights of young people, particularly in relation to when parents separate. The lessons include engaging and empowering activities that allow students to rehearse and develop key skills and attributes — such as help-seeking and building confidence — and equip students with meaningful strategies and skills that can make a positive difference to their lives, both now and in the future.”
