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.
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.
Further information about this free training, development and support offer for schools in the region will be announced in due course.
