SUPPORT high-quality RSHE in schools
A partnership between Brook and Sex Education Forum
This year the Government is reviewing and revising the Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) guidance. This review is happening in response to vocal opposition to inclusive Relationships and Sex Education.
It is vital that any changes to the guidance support – and do not hamper – teachers’ provision of high-quality RSHE in our schools.
High-quality RSHE is needed now more than ever
The need for high-quality, inclusive RSHE has not gone away. Many of the problems it addresses have become more acute including:
- safeguarding children online and off
- young people’s poor mental and sexual health
- exposure to extreme pornography
- misogyny, sexual bullying and harassment
- violence against LGBT+ people

Now more than ever, it is essential for children and young people to be equipped with the skills taught in RSHE. Not only must the curriculum covers key topics to promote respectful relationships and tackle abusive attitudes, but teachers must also be trained and supported to deliver this challenging topic in an engaging and effective manner. I am proud to sign a pledge to support these values and ideas, as well as promoting and celebrating the importance of RSHE in all schools.Sarah Champion MP
It has been a legal requirement to teach Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education since 1 September 2020, now is the point we can review the progress on made and identify what extra support schools need to deliver this important part of the curriculum.
I absolutely support high-quality, Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) that empowers & equips children and young people to make informed decisions about their health, wellbeing and relationships.Rt Hon Dame Maria Miller MP
