Introducing the new Religious Education Agreed Syllabus
Between January and June 2020 we will be holding training events throughout the County, introducing the new SACRE Agreed Syllabus for RE for the coming 5 years. The training is open to all Derbyshire and Derby City schools and academies, and all attending schools will receive a copy of the new syllabus and guidance for all supporting digital materials.
Based on the new OFSTED approach of ‘intent, implement, impact’, the one-day course focuses on practical classroom ideas and strategies, enabling teachers to get to grips with the new syllabus and find out how to apply and use it successfully in their schools.
The course will be led by members of the RE Today Adviser Team, who have written the syllabus. They have a wide national reputation for practicality and excellence in RE CPD.

Access to free period products in schools and colleges in England
Periods are a normal part of everyday life, but we know that it is not easy for everyone to access period products where and when they need them.
The government wants to ensure that no young person’s education is disrupted by their period and have announced the launch of a scheme which will provide access to free period products in schools and colleges in England.
The scheme will support young people to go about their daily lives without getting caught out if they have come on their period unexpectedly, forgotten to bring products with them or if they cannot afford the products they need.
Schools can choose from a range of period products, including environmentally friendly and reusable products, and have these delivered free of charge. Schools are encouraged to engage learners, parents and/or carers in decisions around how these products are made available on-site.
Full guidance on the period product scheme can be found at: www.gov.uk/government/publications/period-products-in-schools-and-colleges.
This scheme is about more than just providing products – it's also about helping to address period poverty and breaking down stigmas.
It is important that all learners – not just girls – are taught about periods and feel able to have an open dialogue within school or college in order to tackle the embarrassment that still remains around this topic. To that end, Health Education will become compulsory in all state-funded schools, alongside Relationships Education for all primary pupils and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) for all secondary pupils. As part of this subject, all pupils will be taught about menstruation and menstrual wellbeing.
