FREE PSHE Conference for Primary Schools 27th of March at Rendcomb College

The focus of the conference is on relationship and Sex education including LGBT+.

As you know, new regulations mandate that from September 2020, all English Secondary schools, in including those in the independent sector teach RSE, all English primaries teach relationships education, and all English schools teach health education. Whilst many of us are already covering RSE and other mandated topics, I thought it would be prudent to invite in speakers (see below) who can help bridge any gaps, so we are ready for the change next September.

Andrew Moffatt (MBE) -

Andrew, the assistant head teacher at Parklands community school in Birmingham, was shortlisted for the World’s best teacher prize last year for his work on a policy called “No Outsiders” which promotes diversity and LGBT+ inclusivity at the 770-pupil school, where over 20 nationalities are represented.

He is able to advise on how we can better teach diversity through all key stages. Andrew will also talk about how he and the school have overcome protests from certain sectors of the community who are against the teaching of LGBT+.

Alice Hoyle -

Alice is an RHSE Advisory Teacher. Not only does she teach but she also writes, advises, advocates and campaigns on all aspects of Relationships, Health and Sex Education.  Alice previously worked as a head of PSHE in a secondary school, SRE Adviser for the London Borough of Enfield and an HIV education adviser for the London Boroughs of Enfield and Haringey. In 2014 Alice was shortlisted for Sexual Health Professional of the Year. 

Her second book, Great Relationships and Sex Education, 200+ Activity Ideas for Educators of young people, has just been published and she will be bringing copies to the conference for you to purchase at a special rate.

Keynote Speakers will be followed by breakout sessions.

The conference on 27th March 2020  will start at 10 am and will end at 1pm. Unfortunately Rendcomb College does not have capacity to offer lunch. Due to parking restraints, places are limited and will be on a first come, first served basis. If you would like to attend, you can register using the following link.
