Spring Fever is tailored to the sexual development phases of children. It offers an age appropriate method of acquiring the knowledge, attitudes and skills needed. As a result, children are better prepared for any subsequent sexual contacts in later life. They also better understand relationships and sexual health.
Spring Fever offers fun and responsible support in providing relationships and sexual health education. Schools that have given senior management support to the programme have noticed the benefits, not only to the children, but also the school itself. Teachers notice that the children become more open both in asking questions about human sexuality and in their interaction with one another. The relationship between boys and girls normalises, there’s less unrest in the classroom and children find it easier to correct their classmates if they behave unsuitably. They become more assertive and better prepared for puberty – a huge benefit to the school.
