Free support and training - Relationships, Sex and Health Education
Tuesday 23rd June 2020
The Bristol Primary Teaching School Alliance in partnership with the Cabot Learning Federation’s Institute and Bristol City Council has been successful in winning a national DfE bid to support the implementation of the new requirements of Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) for schools in the South West.
This RHSE hub is developing a programme of free support using brand new DfE resources to help schools in the region in the year ahead as they consider their implementation roadmap. These resources will be linked to existing resources many of you use already, such as Jigsaw.
Some of the first materials to be released by the DfE will focus on mental health and well-being.
The first wave of online training this term will support reintegration plans for pupils returning to school after the lockdown period.
RSHE leads in Primary, Secondary and Special settings will be supported to gain confidence and greater understanding of the new DfE requirements for this crucial aspect of the curriculum, so they can in turn train their staff and deliver the requirements in their own settings, using a ‘train the trainer’ model.
Follow up support for schools will look at how the new materials fit in with existing resources such as Jigsaw, with facilitated networks to ensure all RSHE leads are confident in their consultation and delivery.
The hub will work closely with the DfE, Local Authority partners and schools across the region.
