Having been thrown into leading PSHE early on in my teaching career I know how daunting that first ‘Sex Ed’ lesson can be, how challenging it can be to assess and pitch your health and wellbeing lessons correctly or how scary it can feel to talk to parents about why you are teaching what you are teaching to their children.
PSHE definitely deals with tricky areas, there’s no avoiding that. This is why I make sure that all my staff training and CPD provides a clear understanding of both the PSHE and RSHE curriculum requirements and gives strong subject knowledge and teaching tips to improve confidence.
With extensive experience teaching staff with no PSHE knowledge through to experienced PSHE Leads, Head teachers and Management, I make sure everyone present leaves feeling empowered and confident to teach the best PSHE and RSHE programs and lessons that they can so all my work is bespoke and written to meet you and your colleagues’ direct needs.
I am an experienced trainer and keynote speaker and can work with groups of any size – endeavouring always to maintain an air of approachability and optimism wherever I go and whatever the focus.
Parent talks are welcomed, and indeed invited, as a vital and valuable opportunity to bring a collaborative approach to supporting and educating the young people in our care.
