Secondary RSE - Intimate and sexual relationships, including sexual health

In June 2019, the government published statutory guidance on Relationship & Sex Education (RSE), Relationships Education (RE) and Health Education (HE). The guidance covers a range of issues to make sure education prepares children/young people for life in the 21st Century. Schools are now being encouraged to begin updating their PSHE provision with RE/RSE & HE to be mandatory in all schools by September 2020.

The Secondary  RSE guidance is split into five key themes:


Respectful relationships, including friendships

Online and media

Being Safe

Intimate and sexual relationships, including sexual health

This page aims to support schools  in exploring potential resources for the delivery of Secondary RSE.
