With just half a term to go schools will want to be reassured they have met all the requirements and been informed by best practice to deliver the new curriculum. This cross-phase conference will enable subject leads and members of SLT to consider further development to achieve high-quality teaching and effective learning outcomes, also addressing Ofsted expectations of the curriculum and its leadership and management.
Rachael Baker, Senior RSE Specialist, Sex Education Forum, will be delivering a keynote focusing on the quality of RSHE, looking at what a best practice lesson would look like. Rachael is a qualified teacher, specialising in working with learners with additional and unique needs. Rachael has held the post of PSHE Coordinator, and has worked with learners in ESBD and SEND schools, most recently working as a nurture base teacher with 16-19 year olds in a special school sixth form. Rachael has recently been awarded an MA in Education, exploring ways to adapt teaching and learning environments to support learners with ASC to fully access learning.
There will be a number of workshops throughout the day, with case studies from schools to share their best practice. In addition, Robyn Steward, Autism Trainer, Consultant, Author and Broadcaster, will be delivering a workshop focusing on autism and adolescence.
(Any schools who are just beginning their development of the new curriculum at this point are advised to seek a consultation briefing before attending.)
