New Remote Learning Resources

Recently Wellacre announced that as a strategic partner school of the Alliance for Learning TSA, we have partnered with other member schools to provide the RSHE (Relationship, Sex and Health Education) curriculum and lessons for the Oak National Academy. 

Together, the team has developed an overall RSHE curriculum, schemes of work, resources and lesson delivery around this important area of education.

Online RSHE lessons are now live online featuring Wellacre staff Mr Whitehead, Teacher of PE/Assistant Head of House, and Mr Duffy, Teacher of PE/Head of Year 11.

Michelle O’Neill, Alliance’s Virtual Head of Department, and Leader of Humanities and SMSC at Wellacre Academy, said:

"Wellacre is excited to see our lessons launched on Oak National and to be involved in such an exciting and necessary project. These RSHE lessons will enable students, across the country, to access learning on topics that are essential for young people to live happy and safe lives, now and into adulthood. 

“If, for any reason, a young person misses out on learning in the physical classroom, these lessons will provide that vital back-up. We also hope they will be of use to teachers across the UK in planning their RSHE lessons as pupils return to school."

The first of the lessons now live on the Oak site can be accessed by schools and students across the country to assist with remote learning in this vital subject. Mr Duffy and Mr Whiteheads’ lessons cover topics such as Mental Wellbeing, Respectful Relationships, The Changing Adolescent Body and Families.  The Internet Safety and Health Lifestyles lessons can be accessed here:

There will be a further launch of Oak RSHE lessons later in the Spring term, with more to come from Mr Duffy, Mr Whitehead and Mrs O'Neill. 

Oak National Academy is an online classroom and resource hub created by teachers, for teachers. It provides nearly 10,000 high-quality video lessons and resources, with content for the full academic year across primary, secondary and specialist schools. 

It was created in April 2020 as a national response to the pandemic, with teachers and education experts creating online lessons. In its first term 4.7million users accessed 20 million lessons. It is staying open for all of 2020/21 to support contingency planning, remote and in-school teaching.
