Delivering Inclusive RSE in Special Schools

This one-day SEND specialist course is for PSHE leads, SENCO, teaching staff and members of the senior leadership team in special schools, supporting learners with additional and unique learning needs.

The session will be run remotely, with opportunities to learn from colleagues, and a full set of course materials made available digitally. The programme for the day runs from 9.30 – 3.30 and includes conferencing with the facilitator, specified time for individual activities and a lunch break. 

This course supports teachers and subject leads in special schools to deliver an effective, compliant and inclusive programme for your learners with SEND. This foundation course gives RSE leads and delivering teachers the opportunity to explore the requirements of the guidance in respect of learners with additional needs, addressing values and attitudes towards RSE in the SEND learning environment.

Participants will explore the implications of statutory status and identify realistic, achievable goals for their school. The session considers specific challenges faced by learners with special educational needs and disabilities, and supports teachers and staff to create inclusive, accessible and needs-led relationships and sex education. This course is supported by a suite of tools and resources.

In this session we will:

  • Explore the RSE guidance and what it means for teachers and learners in special schools
  • Consider what good RSE looks like, and identify specific considerations for RSE in the SEND classroom
  • Examine ways to approach topics such as touch and consent, language and vocabulary, and how to ensure an LGBTQ+ inclusive curriculum
  • Consider individual learners’ experiences of RSE and identify ways to overcome barriers to learning
  • Explore a range of teaching resources and ways to approach key topics
  • Identify good practice and understand how to assess, monitor and evaluate teaching and learning in RSE
  • Increase teacher confidence in developing age-appropriate curriculum for learners with SEND in primary and secondary settings, including what to teach and when, and how to answer learners’ questions
  • Share experiences and best practice with colleagues, and develop your network
