Join the Department for Education (DfE) and subject experts for a series of three 90-minute webinars on Wednesday 2, 9 and 16 March, all starting at 4pm, to support high-quality delivery of relationships, sex and health education (RSHE). The webinars will focus on three important topics: domestic abuse, pornography and sexual exploitation.
The DfE wants to support teachers to tackle the serious issues raised by the 'Everyone's Invited' website and Ofsted's review of sexual abuse in schools and colleges.
The RSHE curriculum provides an excellent vehicle to create a whole-school culture change and promote pupils' safety and well-being. The knowledge pupils will gain from RSHE will support their own, and others' well-being, and help them build positive and safe relationships.
These events will provide an opportunity for teachers, teaching assistants, designated safeguarding leads, SENCOs and PSHE leads in schools and local authorities to hear from experts who will share their knowledge and experience of delivering these sensitive topics in the classroom.
