Relationship, Sex and Health Education consultation

The Department for Education (DfE) has announced changes to Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) Curriculum. These new regulations will make Relationship Education compulsory. Primary schools can choose to teach sex education and it will not be compulsory, with the exception of any teaching that is part of the Science National curriculum.

These changes will come into effect from September 2020 and all schools will have to comply with the updated requirements.

In order to help parents and carers, the DfE has produced the attached guide. In addition, and attached, is the DfE expectations for what our pupils will be expected to know by the end of Year 6.

All teaching has to be age appropriate. We also need to ensure that our RSHE provision is appropriate based upon our pupil’s physical and emotional maturity, religious and cultural background and takes into account special education needs and/or disabilities.
