Give and Get - Sexual Consent Resource Training

The GHLL Team would like to invite you to our training session, the focus of which is the GHLL ‘Give and Get’ teaching resource covering sexual consent and healthy relationships.

A survey of children and young people conducted by the Sex Education Forum, has found that almost one in three young people say they did not learn about consent at school. 

It’s important that young people can take responsibility for consent, that they understand it’s not just about words, but also body language and capacity and that they are able to explore what ‘yes’ does and doesn’t look like.

We hope teaching about consent helps to give them the confidence to have a conversation and not to feel pressured, in response to this, in conjunction with Rape Crisis and GDVSAP, we have created a resource that addresses all areas surrounding consent.

Introduction to Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) for Primary School Settings

BRAND NEW Introduction to Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) for Primary School Settings

 

Gloucestershire Healthy Living and Learning (GHLL) is delighted to launch their new Relationship and Sexual Education (RSE) Resource for primary school settings

It has long been a priority within the county to ensure that our young people access learning which supports them in forming strong positive, safe relationships in both a sexual and emotional context. One of the most effective ways of doing this is to give our young people the tools they require to recognise what’s healthy, understand what they can do about things that might not be healthy or which worry them and who to talk to about this.

Now a compulsory element of the national curriculum, high quality RSE will ensure that our children and young people develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to cope with the pressures, and many challenges, of today’s society.

This set of planning and teaching resources for Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) in our primary schools has been written by Gloucestershire Healthy Living and Learning (GHLL). It forms part of the People in the Know (PinK) curriculum, a wider PSHE and Safeguarding Curriculum for all educational settings in the county suitable at every Key Stage of learning. The RSE planning and resources provide teachers working from Reception to Year 6 in any educational setting within Gloucestershire with everything required to enable them to help young people think about growing up, changes they see in themselves, hygiene, challenging stereotypes and different types of love.

 

You will receive a complete FREE resource pack for your school including CD and the opportunity to go through the resource and ask questions. Puberty brochures for primary and special schools will also be available to collect.

 

Full primary RSE training sessions will be available in the summer and autumn term through GHLL.

To reserve your place and to receive your FREE pack please email ghll@gloucestershire.gov.uk
