Mermaids UK
“From next September secondary schools will have to teach LGBT-inclusive relationships and sex education (RSE) and primary schools to teach about ‘different families’, which can include LGBT families. Mermaids believes there is the need to ensure every school is a safe space for all children and to help us get there, this has to include educating young people around LGBT lives within the context of intersectionality as a whole. Lessons like those included in Explore PSHE are an illustration of best practise and we hope to see more lessons like this in future to ensure the T is not lost in conversation and learning.”  – Mermaids
Mind
"Children and young people today are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of looking after their mental health and wellbeing, and often turn to their schools for support. Mind is proud to work with Hodder, to support children and young people in gaining the knowledge and skills they need to understand what can affect their mental health and what they can do when there’s a problem, as well as school staff in providing the right information and guidance to support their pupils." - Mind
 
Forward
With the new compulsory RSE curriculum coming to schools this year, FORWARD believes that schools need all the support they can get to help them deliver appropriate and accurate training to their students on such sensitive subjects as Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). Explore PSHE will provide best practice and invaluable help and confidence for teachers to tackle these issues and ensure that students understand what FGM is; a harmful and illegal practice that is a violation of human rights. It will also alert teachers to the importance of cultural competence to ensure that pupils are not stereotyped/ profiled and those who are affected access the appropriate support swiftly.” - Forward

We firmly believe that all children and young people have the right to quality relationships and sex education (RSE) as part of broader personal, social health and economic education (PSHE). Hodder's Explore PSHE series explores pertinent RSE topics and supports both students and teachers through tried and tested lessons.” – Brook
