:: Preparing to teach Statutory Relationships (and Sex) Education in primary schools ::
Outline
Given the Secretary of State for Education’s announcement that the government is to make Relationship and Sex Education a statutory subject on the curriculum in all schools, do you want to improve your delivery of sex and relationships education with your students? Do you want to feel more confident in the delivery of this sensitive topic? Do you want to feel more confident so that you can champion these issues for your school? If the answer is yes, then this is the course for you! This course provides teachers with a useful insight into the basics of healthy, loving relationships, sex education including STIs, contraception, pregnancy, abortion, LGBT issues and parenting. It will look at ways to cover issues around sexual abuse, grooming (eSafety), FGM, honour-based violence and domestic violence that ultimately safeguards children too, providing good evidence for Ofsted teams that what delegates deliver is supportive of the safeguarding agenda and provides evidence for the Personal development, behaviour and welfare strand of the new Ofsted framework. During this course there will be opportunities to look through resources, share good practice with colleagues and to ask questions; all are positivity encouraged. We want you to leave the session feeling empowered to teach robust Sex and Relationship Education, meeting our students’ human right to understand their bodies and to keep themselves healthy and safe.
