"Thanks so much for coming in to talk to our year 9 earlier this term. My colleagues commented on how well you engaged the students and how much they got out of your talk. They found the session fun as well as informing, they really liked the myth busting balloons and it was clear from my colleagues that they evidently felt comfortable in asking questions, so thank you for creating that safe environment for them. I will definitely be in touch about future bookings!"– Clare Gardiner, WIT Coordinator, Cokethorpe School
"The training was excellent. Rebecca was very down to earth making me feel at ease about delivering sex education."– Abbey Junior School, Smethwick
"Rebecca presents in a professional manner and makes the subject of sex education very interesting. The children look forward to her visiting school and working in the classroom."– Shireland Hall Primary School, Smethwick
"Just wanted to say how impressed I was with the whole setup the sessions were well organised, content was informative and remained appropriate throughout, even with the open forum style discussions. The delivery was worlds apart from what was provided last year. Definitely worth considering rebooking Becky again for next year."– Mark Steveson Year 6 Teacher, Abbey Junior School
"Pupils have really gained in terms of their understanding and insight. Sensitivity to the needs of our learners, made the information and learning truly accessible. As a result, learners took part in some really interesting and beneficial discussions, sharing their questions, ideas and opinions. Learners actually thanked me for your work!"– Karen Saywood, Headteacher, Braidwood School
"I would highly recommend Rebecca. She came into our school and delivered some sessions on our PSHE days. She was the ultimate professional and feedback from both staff and pupils alike was extremely positive. We will most definitely be using Rebecca again to deliver other aspects of PSHE"– Lisa Darwood, Deputy Head Teacher, Selly Park Technology School
