Testimonials

Yoan has been invaluable in the design and implementation of our RSE provision. She has demonstrated a thorough understanding of the topic, its importance and its sensitivities. Her knowledge encompasses both the statutory and non-statutory guidelines and what best practice looks like in the busy life of a prep school.

Hilden Grange Preparatory School,

Yoan has responded to our needs superbly. Bringing Teaching Lifeskills to our school has been an extremely positive experience. Our pupils, parents and staff have all been impressed by, and grateful for, the impact that it has made.

Sevenoaks Preparatory School

The Teaching Lifeskills seminar I attended was thought provoking, challenging me to think about my approach to parenting in a supportive environment. I felt more able to see the world from my daughter’s perspective and more equipped to help her navigate it successfully.

It was quite apparent from the outset that we had “hit the jackpot” in terms of securing a team who found the measure of our children so readily, and communicated through to them such valuable information in such an age appropriate and sensitive manner. Thank you!

St Michael’s Preparatory School

Otford

The lessons were very well planned and we did some great activities. I now feel more knowledgeable and much more confident about the topics. I think I have really benefitted from the sessions and would like to have them again.

Year 8 student, Rose Hill School

Tunbridge Wells

I really enjoyed the way we were taught, using lots of interactive ways of learning. I now feel more confident and more knowledgeable about my body and more confident about the topics we studied. I am glad that we had these Lifeskills sessions because they will be very helpful in later life.

Year 8 student

Hilden Grange Preparatory School

The sessions were interesting because we could find out about other people’s opinions and values. I have accumulated a lot of knowledge and appropriate language not just to help me in relationships but also to stand up for myself under peer pressure.

As a parent, I found that the information given to me prior to the RSE lessons was extremely useful and interesting and it also gave me the chance to prepare for any tricky questions that may arise at home.

Yoan Reed is highly professional and related extremely well to the children. The feedback was very positive from both children and parents. I have no hesitation in recommending Teaching Lifeskills.

Russell House Preparatory School

Otford

Thank you, for giving me the tools to talk to my son so openly and positively. I loved sharing the information with him and establishing that line of communication.

Mother of three

Sevenoaks

The most important thing I learned today is that I now understand the consequences of sex better and that you should feel safe and ready when you have sex. The lesson involved everyone and the discussion were very inclusive.

Year 10 student, Sevenoaks School

Sevenoaks

I was so pleased when the session discussed our patient population and we were able to discuss children’s own perception of growing up, sex and sexuality. Of most value has been learning about the educational policies shaping sexuality education and familiarise myself with the resources that I can signpost to in my practice.
