PSHE Association Briefing about Puberty

The PSHE Association and the Association for Science Education have produced a joint briefing on schools' statutory duties to ensure that children learn about puberty in Key Stage 2. The briefing outlines the importance of teaching about puberty in order to adequately safeguard pupils, and clarifies that this teaching also forms an integral part of the National Curriculum for Science. 

While this briefing is focussed on the content of the National Curriculum for Science in maintained schools, we hope that it will be of value to all schools.
