The new guidance for statutory RSE has finally been released. The DfE have had their say what young people should be taught – now it is up to schools to implement it…
There is just one key piece missing… What do young people think? What do young people want from their RSE and how can we all deliver RSE that is not only inclusive, but also meets the needs of those it is aimed at?
Our 4th annual Youth conference has been designed to give young people from across Warwickshire schools to have their say: “More Sex Ed please; We’re British”. We have invited all secondary school from across the county to bring 6 Year 9 pupils to attend the conference Tuesday 4th June at Dunchurch Park hotel – and already the guest list is filling up. Each year the conference is getting bigger and better.
During the day all attendees will have the opportunity to explore various issues around social media. There will be key note speeches and workshops delivered by experts. During lunch there will be a market place allowing attendees to pick up a few freebies and a chance to chat with professionals from a number of organisations that can offer support to both young people and schools in general.
This year we are asking all our schools to prepare a small piece of work to present at the conference. We are asking the young people you bring to the conference prepare a short 60second film to present at the end of the day to explore what RSE should look like.
As always, the day will end with a presentations and an award ceremony to celebrate all of our young folk.
The planning is well under way, and we will keep you posted as we get closer to the big day.
