Online Conference: 30 November to 3 December, 4pm to 6pm daily

In September 2020, schools in England began delivery of statutory Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE). This event will support and share best practice in primary and secondary schools delivering the new statutory curriculum, offering a range of practical advice, ideas and guidance that schools can adopt and adapt for their own circumstances.

We will hear from RSE, PSHE and wellbeing experts, including schools, about what is expected and required under the statutory guidance and the early lessons learned from delivery since September. Pupil wellbeing and good mental health will also be a strong theme running through the conference programme.

We will look at challenges to RSHE delivery and good mental health education and how we can overcome these. We will look at embedding the new curriculum and mental health work across the school, and phase-specific challenges. The wellbeing challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic will also feature strongly.

The event – which offers 12 cross-phase, primary-specific and secondary-specific workshops – will touch upon further themes of:

1. How to teach the LGBTQ+ elements of RSE

2. Common barriers to good whole-school mental health and how to overcome them

3. Therapeutic environments and advice for teachers

4. Effective Teaching: RSE for SEN students

5. A strategic approach to leading healthy schools

6. Getting RSHE right in the primary school setting

Good RSE and PSHE also helps schools to meet their safeguarding obligations and Ofsted is also clear that schools must have a clear preventative programme that enables pupils to learn about safety and risks in relationships and modern life.

Taking place over four consecutive days, you are invited to join a series of two-hour, live sessions between 4pm and 6pm, Monday 30 November to Thursday 3 December.

This conference is designed for:

PSHE Teachers and Leads

RSHE Specialists

Curriculum Leaders

Pastoral Leads

Senior Leaders
