Sex and Relationship Education

At The Grove School we use the ‘Lucinda and Godfrey’ scheme throughout the school as part of our Sex and Relationship Education (SRE).

Lucinda and Godfrey is a whole school approach to delivering SRE, taught through age appropriate storybooks that follow the two (Lucinda and Godfrey) characters. The scheme covers friendships and relationships, hygiene, labelling body parts, puberty and other topics.
