Event Description
Following our extensive work with the Southwark Diocese Board of Education in preparing their schools for the new curriculum in line with wider Church of England guidance and SIAMS, we are now offering this training to other Church of England schools.

This day workshop for subject leaders and SLT has been highly evaluated by Southwark Church of England schools.
“Excellent. All of it was useful and the impact will be huge. Lots of information but paced well.” C. Purcell, Subject Lead for Relationships Education, Christ Church Streatham CofE School, Lambeth
“Practical guidance, really useful ideas and very empowering.” G. Jones, Subject Lead for Relationships Education, Minster Infants School, Croydon

It will be a practical course to prepare subject leaders to lead further development of the new mandatory curriculum in their schools. Crucially it will be informed by the new curriculum and key Church of England guidance on Vision, the SIAMS Evaluation Schedule, Valuing All God’s Children 2, Mental Health and Well Being, Fruit of the Spirit, developing character education and more.
Training objectives

  • provide clarity on the legal requirements of the new curriculum to give confidence that nothing has been overlooked

  • provide clarity on how this sits alongside Church of England guidance so schools know they are meeting the requirements of both

  • highlight practical approaches to the implementation of the RSE (and identify links with delivery in the wider curriculum, e.g. science, computing, PE and wider PHSE)

  • include guidance on the importance of engaging with parents and how to address any concerns

  • consider the importance of pupil need and pupil voice

  • include a strong emphasis on inclusion

Learning outcomes

  • to enable subject leads to fulfil their role with confidence and take their delivery staff and wider staff with them

  • to ensure the school is fully informed on the policy and practice requirements

  • to provide clear guidance on the task that remains for primary schools in their preparations for full delivery of the curriculum in September 2020

Additional Information
Delegates should bring their current and any draft policies. Bringing an overview of their current curriculum would also be helpful.
