RSE Roadmap

Cherylynn Wray - Monday, November 26, 2018 -

What is the Roadmap?
The Roadmap is a one-page digital tool with a series of hyperlinked buttons that guide you through the actions and resources needed in order to provide high quality RSE ready for the statutory requirement.

Who is the Roadmap for?
The Roadmap was designed with Heads and Senior Leaders in schools in mind, to use together with their PSHE Leads and governor leading on RSE. The step by step approach breaks the task of preparing for statutory RSE into manageable chunks.

When does the journey start?
Some of the steps on the roadmap require considerable planning and lead-in time, so we'd encourage you to share the roadmap with governors, Heads and SLT now.

Looking for more support?
Dr Polly Haste, Head of Training & Practice, will guide delegates through using the Roadmap and a range of other tools in a pair of workshops at an RSE Countdown conference on 30 November 2018. Polly is running separate workshops for primary and secondary schools which provide a fantastic tool box to ensure you are ready for statutory RSE. Time is running out to book your ticket!

RSE teachers survey
- preliminary findings from a survey of 240 teachers of RSE in England have been published. The Sex Ed Forum found that 29% of those teaching RSE had not had any training in the subject at all. 20% said they lacked confidence in adapting teaching to meet the needs of children with SEND, and 21% said they lacked confidence on making the curriculum LGBT inclusive.

A news story with headline findings is available here, and was also covered by TES
