There is alot to celebrate for those of us who have campaigned for many years for statutory Sex and Relationships Education. New legislation means all schools will have to be delivering the new curriculum by September 2019.
In a speech in the House of Commons on 7th March 2017 Minister Edward Timpson MP said that while there will be flexibility about how it is taught, there will not be flexibility about whether it's taught. So congratulations to all SEF's friends and colleagues and well done to the Select Committees who listened to evidence and put pressure on the Government to act.
