Guidance on gender inequality

Guidance on gender inequality

New guidance to help teachers end gender inequality in the classroom has been released.

“The Gender Issue” from the Sex Education Forum aims to helps teachers understand that gender inequality “underpins the lives of children, adolescents and adults alike”.

The guidance includes views from teachers and interviews with sex education experts, tips on what to consider when planning single-gender sessions, and lesson ideas for all key stages with links to classroom resources.

“Gender affects a school community on so many levels; from the curriculum to staff roles, from pupil achievement to behaviour,” says Sex Education Forum co-ordinator Lucy Emmerson.

“A good quality programme of sex and relationships education will be gender-aware from the start and will help all pupils to communicate with each other and to develop attitudes of respect and non-violence.”
