Getting Ready for Statutory RSE (Secondary)

Relationships and Sex Education will be statutory in all secondary schools from September 2019. This course is the first step in planning for an effective, compliant and inclusive programme in your school.

Participants will work individually and in groups to audit existing provision and review the components of good quality relationships and sex education for KS3-4. Participants will explore the implications of statutory status and work with colleagues to identify realistic, achievable goals for their school. The session will be interactive, with opportunities to practice different approaches and trial a range of quality assured resources.
