Sixth Form, Senior School, Wellbeing
Congratulations to Ms Morton, Head of RSHE for being awarded a Special Commendation in the Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Awards 2022 thanks to her dedication and contribution to our students and school.
Thanks to her dedication and contribution, Ms Morton was recently recognised by the Sex Education Forum, an organisation that has helped support generations of educators and successfully lobbied for the introduction of compulsory relationships and sex education in England.
The RSE Awards takes place every year to celebrate excellence in teaching Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) in England and to shine a spotlight on educators who go the extra mile for their pupils and young people.
“ Inclusive, engaging and effective RSE lessons depend on the whole school community, staff, students and parents all acknowledging its importance and taking the opportunity to address and discuss it in lessons and conversations on a regular basis.”
We are immensely grateful to Ms Morton who for over two years has been providing outstanding resources for RSHE education introducing essential and inspiring materials and lesson plans that align cohesively with current national curriculum requirements at our school. Under Ms Morton’s leadership, Royal High School Bath has adopted a holistic approach to RSHE fostering the values of respect and tolerance that make for healthy relationships and communities and ensuring it runs throughout every aspect of the curriculum and school life.
Commenting on her award, Ms Morton said: “I’m delighted to have received a commendation from RSE. Thanks to the organisation, the subject is now compulsory in schools in England. It’s essential as it gives young people the core skills and knowledge needed to form happy, healthy and fulfilling relationships. Inclusive, engaging and effective RSE lessons depend on the whole school community, staff, students and parents all acknowledging its importance and taking the opportunity to address and discuss it in lessons and conversations on a regular basis.”
