Supporting the teaching of Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) in primary schools From 2020, all primary schools must provide Relationships Education & Health Education. In June 2019, the Department for Education launched the statutory guidance to accompany the introduction of this compulsory education for primary schools in 2020. This course will support your school in being prepared for impending government changes in this field. It is aimed at leaders and teachers in primary school settings, helping to increase their confidence in approaches to teaching RSE. Delegates will also have the opportunity to discuss and view suitable resources.
Ensure your curriculum meets statutory requirement and is fit for purpose For all primary staff planning to deliver and assess PSHE, as part of a whole school curriculum, including the new statutory framework for Relationships Education and Health Education.
Oh Lila is the story of Lila, an adventurous young hare who breaks the rules and gets herself into trouble before seeking help from the wise old hare. The moral of Lila’s story is that if children get into trouble or make a mistake, it is always better to speak to someone they trust to help them. The story aims to build resilience and protective factors. It promotes social support through raising awareness of how to resolve a problem and develops the self-belief to do so. Whilst the resource does not mention alcohol, it has been primarily developed to support children and young people who are affected by someone else's drinking. However, it can easily be used as a basis to introduce issues such as FGM, child sexual exploitation and domestic violence, through encouraging children to talk to someone they trust if they are worried. The Oh Lila resource pack provides a range of materials based on the characters and themes of the Oh Lila story and is a flexible and interactive tool that can be used in working with children to empower them to seek help, be able to identify adults who can provide that help and to assist in the development of new skills which will help build resilience
