Supporting children and young people to make positive relationships matter
The NEU welcome’s the Government’s new statutory guidance for relationships and sex education in schools. This is a huge step in the right direction to ensure all children and young people have access to age- appropriate, inclusive and high quality RSE.
As teachers and educators, we stand in support of our colleagues around the country who are working to make our schools and colleges more inclusive and who are celebrating LGBT+ diversity.
There is an urgent need to ensure that children and young people are equipped with the knowledge and the skills to stay safe and develop healthy, happy and equal relationships.
New relationships and sex education lessons ‘undermined’ as teachers have said they lack confidence.
