How confident are you with delivering a high-quality RSE programme for all of your pupils? What challenges have been identified so far, and how can we overcome these?
The Delivering effective RSE in Schools Online Conference will provide an essential regulatory update, looking at your legal obligations, the impact of Covid-19 pandemic, and how Ofsted will be assessing quality and delivery.
The conference will explore what we have learnt from early adopters, examining best practice and common challenges, as well as look at integrating RSE into PSHE and the wider curriculum, and strategies for improving the quality of teaching and learning.
Further sessions will provide guidance on the role of RSE in safeguarding, pastoral care and personal development, and how we can meet the needs of pupils with additional and complex needs.
With separate sessions for primary and secondary schools, you can ensure the discussion is relevant for your setting and your pupils!
