Do your TA’s support teaching of relationships and sex education?
It’s time to get them trained!
HLTA’s and TA’s can be central in supporting the delivery of RSHE in schools.
With the guidance clarifying the requirements of schools to ensure that RSHE teaching is delivered in ways that are accessible to all pupils with SEND, will your TA’s be required to deliver small group or 1:1 teaching of RSHE? The new guidance emphasises the requirement of schools to ensure high quality, evidence-based and age-appropriate teaching, alongside the importance all staff have in role modelling positive behaviours. High quality, inclusive and relevant RSHE can have a positive impact on pupil health and wellbeing, safeguarding and wider school statutory responsibilities. RSHE can stimulate children and young people to talk to staff with whom they have developed relationships, for many pupils this may be a TA.
Now is the time to ensure your TA’s are positioned to confidently support the delivery of evidence-based RSHE that is compliant with the new guidance.
- Briefing on key, relevant requirements of the new RSHE guidance, including what this means for classroom practice
- Knowledge of high quality, effective RSHE teaching, learning and assessment
- Understand how to adapt RSHE teaching for small group/1:1
- Increase confidence to use correct terminology to describe sexual parts of the body, gender and sexuality in an age-appropriate way.
- Develop confidence in communicating with pupils about RSHE related issues.
