The National FGM Centre, in partnership with the Eve Appeal have collaborated in co-designing lesson plans for introducing FGM to young people, in Key Stages 1, 2 and 3. Know Your Body was created to reach young people with the greatest barriers to healthcare access.
The lesson plans equip schools and teachers with age-appropriate, interactive, specialist designed lesson plans that are easy to use and embed in class, which follow the mandatory RSE duty as well as PSHE Association standards for teaching.
Lesson plans come in a pack of teachers guidance, with ‘script’ like wording that can be followed and adapted, a PowerPoint presentation with presenters notes, and an animation. Teachers can choose to deliver the lessons using either the PowerPoint or the interactive animation. Further information around engaging parents on the lesson plans, as well as frequently asked questions by children is also provided.
