Event Description
The DfE, the new Ofsted framework and the mandatory curriculum for relationship education and health education all place a spotlight on mental health and wellbeing.

Through the PSHE and the new RSHE curriculum, which becomes statutory in September 2020, pupils can be helped to develop the knowledge, skills, language and attributes needed to promote positive mental health and wellbeing. This teaching contributes to safeguarding, resilience, aspiration, character and values education, providing pupils with strategies to keep themselves healthy and safe, as well as equipping them to support others who are facing challenge.

This course particularly explores the strategies and content for teaching positive mental health through the curriculum) [This course is not specific to a post Covid-19 response - see specialist course on Friday 11th September]
