Relationships and sex education (RSE) model policy for secondary schools

The aim of this model policy on relationships and sex education (RSE) for secondary schools is to provide a framework that schools can adopt to update their RSE policy.


Our model policies and policy checklists are designed to assist NEU reps in negotiating the best employment policies on behalf of their members.

Reps should strive to ensure policies are compliant with the NEU models.

Reps should consult members before agreeing new policies or changes to existing policies and should not agree policies that do not meet member expectations, any statutory requirements and NEU minimums.

If a policy is unacceptable members should consider a collective response which may include taking industrial action. For further advice contact your NEU branch.
