Consent education plays an essential part in preventing and addressing sexual harassment and relationship abuse. 

Everyone’s Invited testimonials and Ofsted’s follow-up review into sexual harassment in schools highlighted the severity of the issue. Many pupils said they and their peers would have benefited from better education and advice about consent – including what it means in practice – and related topics.

Our lessons and guidance will give teachers and schools the confidence to teach about consent effectively from key stage 1 right through to the end of secondary school, and cover everything from the law on consent to key considerations for safe, effective teaching.
