Delivering Compliant and Effective RSHE in Primary Settings

Wed, 15 May 2024

Virtual, Online

This one-day masterclass has been designed to support you to effectively deliver the primary RSHE curriculum.

Few teachers receive comprehensive training on delivering RSHE. In a recent review by Ofsted, it was found that around half of the schools they had spoken with were expecting delivery of the RSHE curriculum by staff without any formal training. Ofsted will inspect the delivery of RSHE in your school under the ‘personal development’ and ‘leadership and management’ judgements and so ensuring you are meeting your statutory requirements is critical. Getting the leadership and delivery of a carefully sequenced RSHE curriculum right is crucial for young people. For primary pupils it can provide the grounding for a positive, safe, and healthy outlook on relationships and sex. Join us for this one-day masterclass to explore topics surrounding the delivery of the primary RSHE curriculum. You will come away feeling empowered and confident in your ability to tackle this important role. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion, so that you will come away with the answers you need.

Children and young people were rarely positive about the RSHE they had received. They felt that it was too little, too late and that the curriculum was not equipping them with the information and advice they needed to navigate the reality of their lives.
