Relationships and Sex Education - RSE - will be statutory in all secondary 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 for KS3-4. Participants will explore the implications of statutory status, including the draft guidance, and work with colleagues to identify realistic, achievable goals for their school. The session will be interactive, with opportunities to practice different approaches and trial a range of quality assured resources. This course is supported by a suite of tools to ensure that RSE provision meets the needs of all pupils and involves the whole school community.
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
