RSHE Update for Headteachers – Governor Training 20 November 2019
Relationships, Sex and Health Education
From September 2020, Relationships Education will become compulsory in all primary schools in England and Relationships and Sex Education compulsory in all secondary schools, as well as making Health Education compulsory in all state-funded schools. The DfE is encouraging schools to adopt the statutory guidance early, from September 2019.
The London Borough of Newham Local Authority highly values the views of the parental governor community on this topic and is arranging a consultation for parental governors (that is to say parent governors or governors who are parents) at maintained schools. The consultation evening will take place at Francis House 760 Barking Rd, Upton Park, London E13 9PJ on Wednesday 20 November 2019 at 6 – 8pm.
Even if early adoption is implemented, schools will still need to follow https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/sex-and-relationship-education until September 2020 with respect to relationships and sex education.

Alcohol Awareness Week 2019
The national campaign on Alcohol Awareness is coming up from the 11th to 17th of November 2019.
Newham Council is encouraging residents to give their health a boost by:
- Raising awareness of how alcohol affects health in the borough
- Helping residents to think about their drinking
- Helping residents access help if they need it
Alcohol can affect health in a number of ways including:
- Liver disease
- Memory loss
- Contribute to weight gain
- Sexual difficulties
Also, as part of the campaign, we are promoting the Newham commissioned web based alcohol brief intervention portal that encourages individuals to take a two minutes alcohol test to self-assess their drinking levels anonymously, and get on screen advice via https://drinkcoach.org.uk/newham-alcohol-test
If you are concerned about the levels of alcohol you are consuming, please use the Drink Coach website to take the alcohol test. It’s free, quick and confidential. If you would like further support for yourself or for a family/ friend regarding alcohol consumption, contact CGL Newham Rise.
