Signposting Young People to Services and Information

As a teacher it is important particularly in the secondary phase to signpost students to additional information, clinical support if necessary and information surrounding abortion should the need arise. It is good practice to have a board clearly visible in school or a website to provide this information for pupils. Attached is a leaflet that signposts young people to a range of services.

The most important contact is the local service in Herts:

Sexual Health Hertfordshire has a range of clinics across Hertfordshire providing testing and treatment for Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI), Contraceptive services including free condoms and on-line STI testing. For more information visit:
