Department for Education PSHE and RSE consultation: get your students involved

Department for Education PSHE and RSE consultation: get your students involved

Under the Children and Social Work Act 2017 the government committed to making relationships and sex education (RSE) statutory in all secondary schools, including LA maintained schools, academies, free schools and independent schools (and relationships education in all primary schools). The Secretary of State also has the power under this new Act to make the whole of PSHE education statutory at the same time, depending on the results of a process of engagement and consultation.

This ‘call for evidence’ on PSHE and RSE is now open until 12 February 2018. It provides a real chance for you and young people in your school to have a voice in shaping the future of PSHE education.

The Department for Education (DfE) is keen to hear the views of young people as part of this consultation on PSHE education and RSE, so we have produced the attached lessons (one for key stage 2, and another for key stages 3 and 4) to support schools to gather and submit students’ views. It is an important element of the consultation that the DfE hears from young people who experience their PSHE, including RSE education, in different contexts and through different delivery models and so we encourage as many of you as possible to use this resource to gather and share your students’ views. 

You will find full instructions in the lesson plan materials on how to submit evidence collected during your lessons to the DfE online form

This call-for-evidence is also a vital opportunity to submit your own views on what changes Government need to make in order to improve quality and access of PSHE education for all pupils.
