HPV Lesson Plans

HPV is a very common virus, which is transferred through skin-to-skin sexual contact, that 80% of us will come into contact with in our lives. It can cause genital warts, and in rare cases, several types of cancer. And yet, there is very little awareness of it, and it is surrounded with shame and stigma. We have developed lesson plans to help you teach your year 7/8 and year 10 students about HPV.

Where to fit HPV into your RSHE curriculum

It is now mandatory for schools in England to follow the 2019 Government guidance on Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE). The guidance includes substantial curriculum content on sexual health, which should be covered by the time pupils leave secondary school.

There are a couple of different places within a secondary RSHE programme where the opportunity can be taken to teach specific information about HPV. Here is some guidance to help you choose where you can teach your pupils about HPV.
