Our response to the draft statutory RSE guidance

From September 2020, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education will be compulsory in all UK secondary schools, whilst relationships and health education will be compulsory in primary schools.

In light of this, the guidance on these subjects is being updated for the first time since 2000.

On 25th February 2019 the government released a second draft version of the guidance. This followed a public consultation last year on the initial draft.

At Sexplain we have published a detailed response to this new draft - available here.

We have laid out the positive changes, but also how this guidance can be used and built upon to ensure we bring SRE into the 21st Century with inclusive and comprehensive provision for all.

(You can read the draft guidance here.)

Thank you to our volunteer Eve Pardoe for designing this document.
