One of the DfE appointed RSHE regional hubs

Support for schools with the implementation of new guidelines for Relationships, Sex and Health Education

A comprehensive programme of support and development for PSHE and RSHE leads

Relationships, Sex and Health Education Hub

We are excited to announce that the Bristol Primary Teaching School in partnership with the Cabot Learning Federation’s Institute and Bristol City Council has been successful in winning a national DfE bid to support the implementation of the new requirements of Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) as one of the country’s RSHE hubs.

Book a place on our launch event below!

We are one of only a small number of DfE funded RSHE hubs across England and the only one in this area.  We are developing a cohesive programme of free support and development to help schools in the region in the year ahead as they consider their implementation roadmap.

Our bid looks in detail at supporting RSHE / PSHE leads in Primary, Secondary and Special settings to gain confidence and greater understanding of the new DfE requirements for this crucial aspect of the curriculum so they can in turn train their staff and deliver the requirements in their own settings, using a ‘train the trainer’ model.  We will also look at follow up support for schools, with facilitated networks to ensure all RSHE and PSHE leads are confident in their consultation and delivery.

We will be working closely with the DfE, Local Authority partners and schools across the region to ensure all who are involved feel supported in their understanding of how to work with school staff, governors, young people and their communities when delivering the new requirements of the statutory curriculum in their own unique contexts.

We aim to showcase new materials which have been written by the DfE and support schools to understand how they can link in with existing resources, such as Jigsaw or with schools’ own resources in order to deliver high quality provision for children and young people.

We are delighted to announce the launch of the DfE funded Bristol RSHE hub with the first of a series of training sessions for PSHE, RSE, pastoral leads and other interested colleagues.

In this session we are pleased to welcome Lizzie Henden, Senior Public Health Specialist, Su Coombes from Bristol LA and primary and secondary colleagues to cement our understanding of the roadmap to implementation regarding the revised requirements for Relationships, Sex and Health Education which come into place next academic year. We will also look at the changes to current curriculum provision for both primary and secondary phases.

In addition to this, we will be running a primary and secondary specific session around the topic of mental health and well-being. This will be based upon the new DfE materials and signposted to other resources, in order to develop our understanding of the significant need in this area following the challenging times faced by schools and their communities this year.

We are offering one facilitated online training session in July 2020 and a repeat of this session in September 2020. There is no charge to attend or access the resources. We have also now added an additional third date in November 2020, details of how to book are listed in our eventbrite pages below.

Other sessions will be offered in relation to the content specific areas throughout next academic year.

Places are limited to 2 members of staff per school.

Please note our July launch session is now full
