What to cover, and how to cover it

Most of PSHE education became compulsory for all schools in September 2020. This covers Relationships Education at key stages 1 and 2, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) at key stages 3 and 4 and Health Education from key stage 1 to 4. This was a big campaign success for those of us working to raise the status and quality of the subject for years. 

The pandemic delayed full implementation but from September 2021 schools must cover everything outlined in statutory ‘RSHE’ guidance. This is a great opportunity to make sure all children and young people benefit. And it’s timely, given growing concerns about mental health and sexual harassment in schools.

We have everything you need to plan and teach RSHE with confidence while getting your senior leadership, parents and pupils on board. And we make sure you’re not just ticking boxes – but designing a coherent, easy-to-evidence PSHE curriculum that also covers economic wellbeing and careers. 

Meaningful RSHE for every pupil
