Relationships and Sex Education Workshops

Helping schools to deliver good quality, age appropriate RSE

  • Relationships and Sex Education

    From 2020, Relationships Education will be mandatory in all primary schools in England and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) will be compulsory in all secondary schools.   Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) requires the learning of the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, relationships, sex, human sexuality and sexual health.  It should equip children and young people with the information, skills and values to have safe, fulfilling and enjoyable relationships and take responsibility for their sexual health and well-being (DfE, 2019a).

    It is important to recognise that RSE also plays a key role in a school safeguarding duty. 

    You can get the full version of the statutory guidance here and the PSHE Association have developed a comprehensive Programme of Study which integrates RSE into a broader PSHE curriculum.

    **On Friday 5th June, the Department for Education issued the attached letter, with further information regarding the implementation of Relationships Education, Relationship and Sex Education.  The letter states:

    “The subjects will still become compulsory from 1 September 2020. However, schools have flexibility to decide how they discharge their duties effectively. If a school is unable to begin teaching until summer term 2021 they will need to decide how much of the content they will be able to cover and should still be able to demonstrate how they will cover the entirety of the curriculum in the future. Furthermore, as the subjects will be compulsory from 1 September 2020 the new parental right to withdraw provision will apply”.
