The Expect Respect Programme
What is Expect Respect?
It is a toolkit of interactive lesson plans to promote healthy relationships for students from Reception to Year 13. Each session follows the same format which is active, fun and challenging.
Each session includes:
- A warm up activity
- Main Lesson
Each session stands alone and is approximately one hour in length and Lighthouse provides all the resources required.
The Expect Respect Programme has been specifically designed to be delivered in schools in collaboration with the Home Office and Women’s Aid Federation of England, as part of the PSHE programme.
