In the Children and Social Work Act 2017 the government made a commitment to making relationships education in primary schools and relationships and sex education statutory in secondary schools.
This training will ensure delegates have a clear understanding of what statutory relationships and sex education (RSE) means in practice and the steps to take to prepare for this. Specifically the aims of this session are:
To be effective RSE must be taught within a comprehensive PSHE curriculum to ensure issues such as mental health, online safety, drug and alcohol education and peer influence are considered. Reference to PSHE education will therefore be made throughout this session, including practical activities and opportunity to share good practice.
- to develop an understanding of the requirements of statutory RSE and health education
- to know what steps will ensure your school is ready for statutory status
- to raise awareness of the resources available to enhance the RSE and health education
