Changing Adolescent Body

Puberty! It's all part of growing up and everyone goes through it, just not at the same time.

It’s completely normal for puberty to begin at any point from the ages of 8 to 14 so teaching about puberty before children experience it is essential to ensure that pupils’ physical, emotional and learning needs are met.

Resources for Schools on Changing Adolescent Body

Teaching children about changing adolescent body helps to prepare them for the changes they will experience. It gives them the skills they need to fully manage the natural physical and emotional changes that will happen as they grow and mature. Teaching about these experiences is part of the National Science Curriculum however this learning can then be built on in PSHE.
