Delivering Primary RSE with Confidence


Links between this course and the Ofsted report ’ Not yet good enough: personal, social, health and economic education in schools’:
‘Relationships and Sex Education required improvement in over a third of schools. In primary schools this was because too much emphasis was placed on friendships and relationships, leaving pupils ill-prepared for physical and emotional changes during puberty, which many begin to experience before they reach secondary school.’
‘Lack of high-quality, age-appropriate relationships and sex in more than a third of schools is a concern as it may leave children and young people vulnerable to inappropriate sexual behaviours and sexual exploitation. This is because they have not been taught the appropriate language or developed the confidence to describe unwanted behaviours or know where to go to for help.

Quotes from previous delegates:

'I now have many more ideas on engaging, appropriate activities to follow up learning with. Lots of information to take back to school to update policies etc.'
'Lots of practical ideas as well as the opportunity to share ideas and discuss lesson ideas.'
'The information was delivered well with a good balance between teacher talk and group activities.'
'The course provider was very informative and offered some excellent and relevant advice.'
