Transforming culture through relationship education in pirmary schools 
* acet UK is the working name of Aids Care Education and Training

acet UK is a vibrant youth-centric charity, and our aim is to transform culture by promoting healthy self-esteem, positive relationships, and good sexual health.

We do this by:
- delivering quality relationships and sex education (RSE) to more than 2,000 11-18 year olds in London (predominantly deprived areas of Southwark in Camberwell, Peckham and Bermondsey) each year through our acclaimed Esteem programme. Our fun, engaging and effective sessions challenge harmful messages from porn, social media, and music, and provide young people with a safe space to discuss important topics such as self-esteem, emotional wellbeing, healthy relationships, distortions of the media, and sexual health.
- sharing our expertise with youth workers, teachers, health practitioners and faith groups nationwide through providing accredited training and creative resources that are tried and tested by the amazing young people we work with. 
- providing support to parents on how to talk to their children about relationships and sex 
Over the past few years, teachers have asked if we also have a primary school program because the resources available to them are out-of-date and not equipping children to grow up in their digital world.
The strong need for a primary curriculum is also evident from our own engagement with Year 7 pupils (aged 11), who’ve just transitioned from primary school. We’re often shocked by their lack of knowledge about their bodies and puberty, low levels of self-esteem, and harmful attitudes around relationships and sex.
We will:

-  identify 3 primary schools in Greater London to work with in developing the new curriculum.

-  carry out further research with teachers to identify the key needs

-  run focus groups with parents to identify the needs they feel are most important

-  develop and create new resources

-  pilot the resources with 500 primary school children

-  deliver the completed program to an additional 1000 primary school children

-  train 108 teachers (nationwide) through 9 INSET days so that they are able to deliver the new Esteem primary relationships education program to their pupils
