What can I expect from a Naked Truth session and how does this FIT into educational guidelines?

 

Each Naked Truth session is different and we offer classroom based lessons and presentation-style lessons delivered by a trained educator who is confident and experienced in talking about the issues surrounding sex and pornography. 

Every one of our lessons can be tailored to your pupils and schools needs but we ensure that each lesson is always age-appropriate and includes a variety of active learning methods to educate, engage and equip young people. 

In secondary schools…too much emphasis was placed on ‘the mechanics’ of reproduction and too little on relationships, sexuality, the influence of pornography on pupils’ understanding of healthy sexual relationships, dealing with emotions and staying safe.
— Ofsted 2013

Each of our lessons has been written, developed and piloted alongside educators and head-teachers to ensure that the content is age-appropriate, engaging and relevant for young people and fits in with SRE & PSHE principles and guidelines. The PSHE Association’s Programme of Study sets out learning at different key stages and the issues that Naked Truth addresses can be seen as part of a broader programme of learning on keeping safe and building healthy relationships.

 

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE LESSON?

Whilst we educate in the hope that we can prevent young people from coming to harm online, we are also aware that there are many whose lives have already been deeply affected by pornography (either through their own use or by someone else that has used it).

Therefore we seek to help young people develop the ability to move beyond past bad experiences and begin making positive decisions regarding sex and relationships. We also provide further information as required and inform them of a confidential recovery website plus any pastoral support that is available within the school and local area.

We will also be on hand to answer any questions (from yourself or the pupils) at the end of the lesson and provide you with the answers from an anonymous survey taken at the end of the class in order that you can identify current concerns amongst your pupils about sex and relationships.
