Parents and Carers

Holistic, high quality Relationships and Sex Education for secondary schools Years 7-11

Transparency and Safety

We understand that learning about relationships and sex in today’s culture covers difficult issues and many parents and carers are rightly concerned about what their children may be learning. This page is designed to allow parents and carers to see exactly what their child will be learning through the Respected programme.

Our Core Values

At Respected, we take the education of your children very seriously. At the heart of our charity is our strong conviction that each child/young person is unique and valuable, capable of making healthy choices when they have access to the appropriate information, tools and support. We believe that everybody deserves healthy and fulfilling relationships.
