The Department for Education (DfE) has published its consultation response on new Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education, and Health Education in England guidance. The consultation received over 11,000 responses online and through email, and received 29,000 signatures in response to two petitions.
The new guidance, which is to be implemented in schools from September 2020, highlights some of the content that will be taught in schools to pupils. This includes, but is not limited to:
It is expected that all content should be delivered in an age appropriate manner and that appropriate content, reflecting British values and society, should be included.
