On this page you will find links to a range of resources from a number of organisations to help you engage with and respond to the new Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) guidelines which become mandatory in all schools in England from September 2020.
Now is the time to act as individual schools will be considering how to implement the guidance and developing their formal policy. A key part of this is a requirement to consult parents during the process.
Whilst the battle to stop the updated guidance has been lost, you can still be a positive influence on its implementation. We trust these resources will be helpful and would urge you to set aside some time to work through them and consider how you should respond.
