The DfE has produced a guide for primary headteachers setting out why they must engage parents on their school’s relationships education policy and tips on how to do so.
You will find additional useful information on the health and wellbeing pages of Solgrid within the PSHE section. Please click here.
It is open to all PSHE education teachers in the West Midlands, with priority given to those from Birmingham and surrounding areas if over-subscribed. The session will explore what makes young people vulnerable to radicalisation, and the protective and preventative factors PSHE education can develop to reduce extremism risks.
The twilight is provided with funding from the Home Office as part of its ‘Building a Stronger Britain Together’ programme, awarded by the London Community Foundation programme.
Attendees will gain practical support to review, plan and implement a PSHE education curriculum that effectively safeguards pupils, including:
- Awareness of the knowledge, skills and attributes PSHE education develops to support resilience to extremist ideologies of all kinds
- An increased understanding of extremism, the process of radicalisation and of PSHE education’s role in safeguarding pupils, in line with schools’ statutory duties
- Knowledge of resources to support safe and effective lesson delivery
Book your free place by visiting the Services for Education website.
The session will be held at Services for Education, 3 Holt Court, Holt Street, Birmingham B7 4AX.
On Wednesday 25 September 2019, Solihull School will host a CPD day for colleagues nationwide on Tackling Prejudice and Discrimination in the Digital Age: What Can Schools Do? and they would like to invite you colleagues from your school to join us for a unique event centred around the extraordinary life story of Eva Schloss.
Eva will join you for a Q&A after a performance of And Then They Came for Me, a critically acclaimed play about her remarkable family history and an exhibition, The Promise, about the artistic talents her brother Heinz cultivated whilst hiding from the Nazis for two years. It is the first time the play and the exhibition will be shown together.
Furthermore, the day will also involve a series of prominent speakers and organisations who will cover a wide range of relevant topics, whilst providing practical advice and measures for teachers interested in developing such initiatives in their own schools. Further information about the programme can be found in the attached flyer.
Places on the Wednesday CPD event on 25 September 2019 can be booked at a subsidised rate of £95 via the TryBooking link here:
