From September 2020 RSHE is compulsory in all schools. RSHE is Relationships / (Relationships and Sex Education in secondary schools) and Health education. This page will help you to understand the basics on what is changing as well as all the great extra (and FREE) support, blogs, videos and resources Loudmouth can give to help you get ready.
When does it start?
It is already here. It became compulsory in September 2020 although many schools started early as ‘early adopters’. Any schools that had difficulties getting everything ready due to the Coronavoirs pandemic have until September 2021 to make sure that they have everything ready.
Are you ready?
Whilst we are sure that many of you are already getting ready for this, we also know that many others are worried and need support. A poll of more than 2,000 teachers by the NSPCC children's charity and National Education Union found that 28% of teachers believe their school is not ready to teach new relationships and sex education lessons and 47% lack confidence in their own ability to deliver the new curriculum.
How we can help
To start with we can help you understand what the guidance is all about with our series of bite size blogs to help you build your understanding. You can read these here.
We celebrated our 27th birthday this year and as a birthday present to all schools we are offering free support to any teachers that are concerned about being ready.
We provide free updates and advice, signposting, free lesson ideas and training videos for staff and parents to help schools to get ahead and on the road to compulsory relationships, RSE and health education. We can also provide practical and accessible training on what schools need to do and some great skills and ideas on delivering great RSHE sessions.
Loudmouth are members of the Sex Education Form and the PSHE Association and will also keep you informed about their planning tools and advice alongside our own updates and resources.
What is the cost of the support?
Diddly-squat! We will support you with free advice, updates, videos and resources to help get ready. You can get your free support by signing up here.
In fact, if you have already booked a Loudmouth session then you'll automatically get all of this great support plus loads of extras including over 100 lesson plans on topics covered in the new guidance.
What people say
Take a look at how we’ve helped others
Brilliant acting and interaction with the children. The play itself covered puberty in an open, realistic and humorous way which forms a terrific basis for future discussion with the teacher and each other. So much depends on the enthusiasm of the actors and I feel that we were very lucky to have such a talented pair, not only to perform, but to lead the discussions afterwards. They were able to relate to the children without any embarrassment. SUPERB!!
Compared to other companies we have had covering the same content, the actors were more flexible and accommodating to the children’s individual needs. Through their answers and questions, the children were demonstrating a higher level of understanding, empathy and personal safety.
