free webinar series: everything you need, to ensure you are prepared
Statutory Relationships and Health Education should now be fully in place in your curriculum. There was a grace period given due to Covid-19 and the understanding that some topics in this curriculum area are better taught face to face than online, but by now your subject coverage should be complete according to the requirements of the statutory guidance.
Prior to implementation of the statutory guidance, we created a roadmap with accompanying resources to support schools in fully covering the requirements. We also produced a series of webinars to give more information and support. Whilst these were written before the subject was statutory, so the terminology might be a little out of date, we have decided to still give settings access to them as the content is still really helpful for you to check if your provision is compliant and has the breadth needed for success.
