Why is RSE important?

In September 2020, RSE became mandatory in schools across England – a change that has spurred new discussions about the way we approach Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) nationally.

RSE DOES:

  • Give young people the opportunity to discuss what to expect from relationships
  • Encourage positive self-esteem and self-worth
  • Explore consent in relationships and the importance of understanding the law around young people and sex
  • Give factual information on risks, STIs, pregnancy and prevention
  • Encourage young people to talk to parents and carers about relationships and sex education

RSE DOES NOT:

  • Just talk about sex!
  • Promote sex, at any age
  • Presume all young people are sexually active or experimenting
  • Undermine different cultures and religion
  • Take away the responsibility of parents and carers
