Relationships, sex and health education from September 2020

As school leaders and teachers will know by now, the teaching of relationships, sex and health education (RSHE) will become compulsory from the beginning of September 2020.

Schools that are ready to do so can start teaching RSHE straight away, and those schools who need more time to make proper curriculum arrangements have until the beginning of the summer term next year (2021) to make such arrangements.

​This guidance document provides an overview of what you need to do to prepare your school for teaching RSHE. Alternatively, you can use it as a checklist if you are ready to go ahead.
