(Primary) Get ready for statutory! Delivering high quality Relationships and Sex Education - London

09:30 — 16:00
Lift, 45 White Lion Street, London N1 9PW

Relationships Education and Health Education will be statutory in all primary schools from September 2020. Schools are encouraged to begin implementing the changes from September 2019 and this course is the first step in planning for an effective, compliant and inclusive programme in your school. 

This course is for teaching staff, support staff and members of the senior leadership team. Participants will work individually and in groups to audit existing provision and review the components of high quality Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) for EYFS and KS1-2. Participants will be introduced the the 'Roadmap to Statutory RSE' tool and have the opportunity to handle a wide range of quality assured resources. Participants will be guided through the new draft guidance (February 2019) and work with colleagues to identify realistic, achievable goals for their school. The implications of the new subject of Health Education will also be explored.

Participants will be able to:

  • Brief colleagues on new legislation, guidance and Ofsted requirements, including safeguarding
  • Identify good practice and understand how to assess, monitor and evaluate teaching and learning
  • Review and update existing provision in line with new legislation    
  • Facilitate consultation with staff, pupils and parents  
  • Apply a range of resources and approaches to ensure Relationships Education is inclusive and needs-led

What participants say:

“A fantastic, informative course. Very helpful and clear”

“I have a much clearer understanding of what we need to do and to take our time to get it right”

“I feel more confident in what needs to be done, how we need a bigger focus on relationships”
