and safe.

Working with schools

The Department for Education is introducing compulsory Relationships Education for primary pupils and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) for secondary pupils from September 2020.

Through these subjects, the DfE want to support all young people to be happy, healthy and safe and want to equip them for adult life and to make a positive contribution to society. Love4Life can provide support for schools to deliver RSE as part of the curriculum by delivering structured sessions, teacher training and a range of resources. Please contact one of our coordinators to discuss your needs.

Love4Life is dedicated to supporting the pastoral needs of our local secondary schools and alternative provisions. We want to provide space within and outside of the normal school or college day for young people to explore issues and difficulties they may be facing. Love4Life’s 1-2-1 specialist pastoral service focuses on enabling young people to talk about topics and issues to do with relationships and sex. Our referral criteria helps us to target those individuals who are struggling the most and provide relevant support. Therefore it is essential that the referred young person fits one or more of the criteria.

Referral Criteria:

  • Requires relationships information, advice and guidance
  • Decrease in self-esteem due to friendship or relationship issues
  • In ‘risky’ friendships and or relationships
  • Engaging in sexting or other unsafe social media activity
  • Unhealthy sexual activity
  • At risk of exploitation

How this can look:

  • ½ hour weekly appointment on referral basis
  • Held at school/college/public venue
  • 6 – 10 weeks

This service relies on full cooperation from schools and referral agencies.
