Preparing for Statutory Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education, and Health Education

Thursday 28th February 2018, 9:30am-4:00pm Trowbridge Rugby Club.

Teaching about relationships and sex is a key part of a PSHE education curriculum and can contribute to safeguarding pupils. An effective whole school approach to relationships education and sexual health will help equip young people with the skills they need to successfully manage the potential challenges of relationships in the modern world.

The DfE recently announced its intention to introduce a statutory new subject ‘Relationships Education’ in primary schools and ‘Relationships and Sex Education’ in secondary schools, in addition to new guidance for Health Education. This course will help schools to evaluate their current provision, in the light of current guidance and the identified needs of pupils.  

This course is for primary, secondary and special schools. LA and non LA. PSHE Coordinators and teachers £160

This course will enable you to:

  • Evaluate your current provision in the light of current guidance and good practice in other schools
  • Consider age appropriate delivery, to meet the needs of all pupils
  • Increase your understanding of how a whole school approach to Relationships Education can keep young people safe and help promote healthy relationships
