Statutory RSE & health education

PSHE Curriculum
The government has finally published its draft guidance for the new subjects of relationships and sex education and health education. Lucy Emmerson looks at how we can prepare

Relationships and sex education (RSE) is finally being updated. Draft guidance, published in July, is open for public consultation. Schools that are ready to provide high-quality RSE should do so from September 2019 and those needing longer to prepare have until September 2020 before they must be teaching the new curriculum.

So what does this mean for your school? While some of the details could change, the draft sets out a clear direction of travel. For the first time, every school in the country must prepare to provide RSE – and schools that are doing so already will need to review and update their teaching.
