Identify and evaluate the relevant issues and priorities in safer sex education, in relation to children.
The teaching of sexual education is a lifelong process of gaining information and developing attitudes, beliefs and values about the identity, relationships and intimacy of you as an individual and those you have relations with. It takes into account sexual development, reproductive and general health and safety, gender roles, intimacy, body image and relationships. The issues that are discussed within school-based sex education are appropriate to the student's age and developmental levels and capabilities. A good sex education programme needs to be respectful of the values and beliefs that are represented within the diverse communities through being open to many different views and interpretations. Sex education should aim to assist people in the necessary understanding of having a positive view of sexuality, through providing them with information and skills about taking care of their health, and to develop the skills to make decisions now and in the future, the use of particular published literature, views and opinions will be considered and evaluated in respect to these views.
