Girl Talk, Boy Talk
Girl Talk Boy Talk is a single sex educational programme for year 9 students delivered across Southampton, Portsmouth and Hampshire schools.
Girl Talk Boy Talk runs across 4-7 sessions during the school term and consist of informal, group-based discussions delivered by trained facilitators. Sessions are fun and interactive and cover topics such as puberty, consent, healthy relationships and young parenting.
The educational programme contributes to and enhances the wider PSHE programme as part of the curriculum rather than replacing classroom based lessons. The smaller group sizes with sessions over 4-7 weeks allow the students to build relationships with each other and the facilitator. The safe environment encourages them to ask the questions they want the answers to and to make positive lifestyle choices around relationships and sexual health.
