Priorities for implementing compulsory relationships and sex education (RSE) in schools in England is the focus of this seminar as Government conducts its consultation on the RSE curriculum - looking at what topics parents, teachers, and young people feel should be incorporated in the new school guidelines. The consultation is being led by Ian Bauckham, Chief Executive Officer, Tenax Schools Trust, who has kindly agreed to deliver a keynote address at the conference.
Delegates will consider what measures are necessary to ensure that all pupils have access to high quality RSE that takes account of age and religious background, as well as priorities for designing an RSE curriculum inclusive of LGBT+ and SEND groups. The agenda looks at what can be learnt from existing examples of best practice in teaching RSE, including in parental engagement to maximise the reach of RSE lessons and the involvement of young people in curriculum design.
Further sessions consider priorities for equipping the teaching workforce with the skills and confidence necessary to teach RSE, in light of research from Coram Life Education, which found that two thirds of primary school head teachers and PSHE leads require further guidance on implementing compulsory RSE.
