Since September 2020, Relationships Education, Health Education, and Relationships and Sex Education became compulsory in England. Relationships, Sex and Health Education is sometimes shortened to RSHE.
From September 2021, schools are expected to teach an RSHE curriculum that meets the Department’s statutory guidance.
The NEU wants to support all schools to build an effective, inclusive and needs-led RSHE. We encourage schools to keep engaging with parents and pupils as much as possible to help inform curriculum planning and to identify gaps in learning that may have been exacerbated by the pandemic, so that topics can be picked up later.
