Sex education is a highly emotive topic that generates strong social debate making this a very challenging area of health practice. This is particularly true with the education of young children in primary education. This study presents findings from a qualitative study which explored the experiences of school nurses involved in teaching of sex and relationships education in the primary school setting. The findings identify sources of tension in this area of practice and the strategies employed by the nurses to manage those tensions whilst operating within the context of existing organizational constraints. This provides the basis for consideration of what constitutes good practice.
