A day to explore the background to current thinking on Sex and Relationships Education and SEND.

What do these terms mean for those with profound and severe learning difficulties and/or autism? Do they mean different things than for the rest of society?

  • Dilemmas of Difference
  • The difficulties of teaching SRE to those with learning PMD, SLD and/or ASD
  • The key roles of professionals and parents
  • Taking a different, rather than a differentiated approach to learning
  • What do we have to teach? Ofsted, the DfE and the law
  • The fundamental importance of a base/core curriculum that is applicable to all and an exploration of that core curriculum
  • Extending out beyond the core Sex and Relationships Education curriculum as relevant
  • Plenary
