How do you fit excellent RSE into a tight timetable? How can schools with very different starting points deliver the same RSE programme? What does ‘working together’ look like when it comes to RSE?

This episode focuses on the challenge of coordinating RSE across different schools within a Multi-Academy Trust. We hear from Kate Atkins, Head of Primary Phase at The Litcham School about how she worked with senior leaders, teachers and parents to ensure a consistent and evidence-based approach to RSE across all schools in the trust. Kate shares why RSE is so important and why practice sharing is essential if RSE is to have a long term impact on pupils lives.
