PSHE Education and Statutory RSE in 2019? - Getting it Right for Secondary School Settings in Leeds Consultation Workshop
In March, 2017, Justine Green (Secretary of State for Education) released the following statement:
‘I am today announcing my intention to put Relationships and Sex Education on a statutory footing, so every child has access to age appropriate provision, in a consistent way. I am also announcing my intention to take a power that will enable me to make PSHE statutory in future, following further departmental work and consultation on subject content.’
The amendments that the Government will table to the Children and Social Work Bill place a duty on the Secretary of State for Education to make regulations requiring:
- All primary schools in England to teach age-appropriate ‘relationships education’; and
- All secondary schools in England to teach age-appropriate ‘relationships and sex education’
To ensure Leeds schools/academies are prepared for any impending changes we are holding a brief consultation workshop to review PSHE/SRE - exploring current schemes of work, resources and more importantly any gaps in provision.
