Preparing for implementing compulsory relationships and sex education in schools - curriculum content, best practice and teacher training

Morning, Thursday, 8th February 2018

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This timely seminar will assess priorities for implementing compulsory relationships and sex education (RSE) in schools in England from September 2019.


Delegates will consider the future for developing an RSE curriculum, ahead of an expected consultation on the topic later this year, including issues around mental health, online safety and healthy relationships. They will also discuss the measures necessary to ensure that all pupils have access to high quality, inclusive RSE that takes account of age and religious background.


Further sessions will consider what can be learnt from existing examples of best practice in teaching RSE, including parental engagement and the involvement of young people in curriculum design, as well as priorities for equipping the teaching workforce with the skills and confidence necessary to teach RSE.
