Some ideas that you may wish to consider for your school's project:

  • Two days of relief teaching to enable school staff to undertake professional development in RSE and/or work in school to improve on existing RSE programs.

NB: grants cannot be used to pay for outside professionals to conduct RSE training, internal salaries or wages, but can be used to pay for relief so that staff can be released to attend training.

  • Parent workshops facilitated by teachers and / or students

  • Competitions to create adverts (radio / TV / social media) promoting positive RSE behaviours (e.g. how to seek help, how to manage changes, bodily autonomy).

  • Creation of a specific 'health' room that can be used to display RSE health messages and posters.

  • Creations of a collaborative art piece with an RSE theme.

  • Development of a puberty kit for puberty lessons (with examples of products that relate to puberty e.g. pads, tampons, period knickers, bra, shaver, deodorant, etc). See GDHR Puberty Kits lesson.

  • Creation of 'goodie bags' of assorted craft materials for the GDHR Year 5 and Year 6 Reproductive systems lessons.

  • Purchase of books / resources to support the GDHR lessons (See Resources section for ideas).

  • Development of a whole school RSE Policy in consultation with parents.

  • Development and implementation of a student led initiative to improve RSE knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours of peers.

You can also apply for funds for an idea of your own! If you would like to discuss your idea prior to the closing of applications please contact
