Course description

This 2-hour session covers best practice in consulting with parents and carers about the new statutory RSE guidance as well as supporting schools to build strong and ongoing relationships with parents. We will also cover how to develop an RSE curriculum that is inclusive of the values and beliefs of family communities and how to gather this insight.

Part One – The new statutory guidance:

·       What do schools need to do to meet the statutory requirements?

Part Two – Working in partnership & planning ahead:

·       Best practice – parent engagement & consultation activities

·       Developing a curriculum that reflects the values of your parent communities

·       Inclusivity – supporting faith & LGBT+ communities

·       Maintaining ongoing parent engagement


This course is available for all educational professionals but will be particularly useful for Senior Leadership who are interested in developing effective parent partnerships.
