“When Alex visited Oundle to speak to parents on the theme of “Talking to your Children About Sex” the response from parents was very positive.

Parents of all pupil age groups were invited, with several boarding parents travelling long distances, and really appreciated the chance to find out directly from Alex about her contribution to Oundle School’s Sex & Relationships Education, enabling them to feel more confident in opening the conversation with their children as they were given the inside track.

Alex’s combination of professional expertise and personal experience as a parent who has seen teenagers through the tricky years created an informative and relaxed atmosphere, where parents could discuss not only with Alex but each other their views and concerns.

Many parents who were unable to attend were keen for information, and Alex helpfully provided a reading list of good books, latest research and useful links and contacts, which was specifically tailored to our school’s ethos. Feedback from parents was excellent- one mother even suggested that she wanted as much PSHE input as the pupils had as she had enjoyed the session so much!”
