Overcoming barriers to learning in the RSE classroom

13:00 — 15:00
Remote access - via zoom

The second of a trio, this webinar explores ways to make RSE teaching accessible to all learners. Exploring the barriers to learning which some learners face, incuding additional learning needs and disabilities, as well as emotional, social or behavioural difficulties, and different lived experience to their peers. 

Ideal for SENCOs, RSE and PSHE subject leadssenior leaders with subject responsibility for the subject, and class teachers delivering RSE to learners in mainstream settings, or in alternate provision, or special schools, where learners academic capability might be impacted by social and emotional needs. This webinar can form part of a programme of CPD alongside other webinars from the SEND suite, or is equally suitable as a standlone unit for staff in mainstream schools.

Facilitated by RSE Specialist and teacher Rachael Baker, participants will:

- Consider the differing needs and lived experiences of learners to develop an inclusive programme of study.

- Examine issues such as appropriate resources, different starting points and variable learning needs, guiding you towards creating a robust and sensitive model.

- Explore practical considerations such as how teaching assistant (TA) support may be deployed, considerations regarding resources, timetabling and learning environment, as well as ways to use targeted intervention and small group work.

This webinar forms part of the whole school approach to RSE that we recommend and will enable you to develop a curriculum that is age appropriate, needs led, differentiated and personalised.

This webinar can form part of a programme of CPD alongside other webinars, or is equally suitable as a stand alone unit for staff in mainstream schools and alternate provision settings.
