Transform the impact of wellbeing teaching to provide pupils with resilience, strategies and skills to flourish in life.
This cross-phase conference will identify effective and impactful strategies and approaches to the teaching, learning and assessment of RSHE and wider wellbeing. Keynotes and school case studies will illuminate how schools can transform pupil learning to effect successful futures.
The mandatory Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) curriculum requires more than a comprehensive programme of study and a set of resources. We need to teach with creativity, innovation and passion and to assess what is truly valuable. Teaching must be future proofed, enabling pupils to see the relevance of their learning and its application to their own lives.
Refresh creativity and bring new growth and excitement to securing flourishing lives for all with our programme of workshops and presentations introduced by Karin Hutchinson, Lead Wellbeing Adviser, Herts for Learning and Kate Stockdale, Wellbeing Adviser, Herts for Learning.
Dr Pooky Knightsmith, the internationally renowned face of child and adolescent mental health, will give the keynote address Four Principles for Involving and Inspiring Young People.
The programme for the day will also include presentations from:
