Expect Respect Education Toolkit by Women's Aid
A comprehensive package of teaching materials focusing on abuse in relationships.
Addressing abuse in relationships and especially teenage relationships is an essential part of a comprehensive PSHE education programme. Many young people are vulnerable to such behaviour, many may not recognise such behaviour as abusive or if they do feel unable to seek help.
The 'Expect Respect' resource offers teachers a comprehensive package of engaging teaching material that encourages open ended, active learning that enable young people to explore this issue in ways that are relevant to their own lives. The resource is also highly flexible allowing teachers to use the material in a variety of ways to enrich their own programmes and reflect the needs of their pupils.
Most importantly it provides material that crosses all the key stages recognising the need to start work on healthy relationships in Key Stage 1 and build on this through all the key stages.
