Relationships, Sex and Health Education for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities

Join the Department for Education, and experts on Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health education for a two-hour webinar covering key issues to support preparation for high quality RSHE.
The knowledge pupils will gain from RSHE will support their own, and others’ wellbeing, and help them build positive and safe relationships. This will be particularly important in the coming months as pupils return to schools and start spending time with friends again.
Getting it right for pupils with SEND will help to combat some of the health inequalities, abuse and isolation that data shows us they are more likely to suffer as adults. RSHE also plays an important role in supporting pupils to achieve specific outcomes under the statutory duties relating to preparing for adulthood.
This event is for teachers, teaching assistants, SENCOs and PSHE leads in local authorities to hear from experts who will share their experiences of getting it right in both mainstream and special schools. 
Speakers include Ian Bauckahm, CEO of the Tenax Schools Trust and DfE Adviser, the PSHE Association, the Sex Education Forum and Professor Barry Carpenter, professor of mental health in education from Oxford Brookes University.
This event is free to attend – please register here.
If you are unable to attend on this date and would be interested in attending a future event please register your interest here.
From September 2020, schools have a statutory duty to deliver RSHE to their pupils. They will have flexibility over how they introduce these new subjects within the first year of compulsory teaching and should begin teaching by no later than the start of summer 2021.
