This session will give delegates a clear picture of how high quality Personal, Social, Health & Economic (PSHE) education makes a significant contribution to successful Ofsted inspections.
A well-established, planned, and progressive PSHE curriculum can provide valuable opportunities for schools to evidence practice across all current Ofsted judgements. In particular, the judgement of Personal Development has plenty of criteria which PSHE, including the statutory requirements around Relationships Education, Sex Education and Health Education (RSHE), can uniquely demonstrate.
This session will practically explore how schools can maximise the opportunities that an effective PSHE education programme can bring and help to positively prepare schools (especially SLT and subject leaders) for the inevitable conversations around Personal Development which link so crucially to PSHE.
Who should attend?
Colleagues from primary or secondary phases, including:
PSHE (RSHE) subject leads
Teachers/facilitators of PSHE
Key Learning Objectives:
Explore how and why PSHE is so important to both schools and students
