Relationships and sex education and health education: consultation
The Department for Education (DfE) is seeking views on draft regulations, statutory guidance and a regulatory impact assessment for relationships and sex education and health education in schools in England. The guidance will become compulsory in all schools across England from September 2020. Proposals include: all schools will be required to teach compulsory relationships education in primary school; relationships and sex education in secondary school and health education (about physical and mental health) in all state funded schools. Lessons will also help young people keep personal information private, navigate the virtual world, challenge harmful content and balance online and offline worlds. The consultation closes on 07 November 2018.
