Letter to the Secretary of State for Education - keeping statutory RSE on track

On Friday 16th June the Sex Education Forum and PSHE Association wrote to the Secretary of State for Education Justine Greening, urging her to clarify the timeframe for drafting of the Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) guidance and consulting on the broader framework of PSHE education; and expressing our hope that the pause in this process, resulting from the General Election, doesn’t compromise the scope or quality of the consultation process the sector was promised, or the timeframe for implementation in 2019.

It is essential that the expertise of all stakeholders is reflected in the new guidance and regulations, in order to ensure that they are fit for purpose and will support schools to deliver good quality Relationships and Sex Education.
