In 2020, Relationships Education became a compulsory part of the curriculum for Primary Schools. This is often referred to as RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) although Sex Education does not become mandatory until KS3 and KS4 (Year 7). This was brought in under the Relationships Education, RSE, and Health Education (England) Regulations 2019 and is a new approach to teaching children about relationships and health. In Primary Schools, there are 5 compulsory areas of learning:


  • Families and people who care for me
  • Caring friendships
  • Respectful relationships
  • Online relationships
  • Being safe

To reflect modern society, children will be taught about such things as civil partnerships as an alternative to marriage, preparing for the online world, and unhealthy relationships, including violence, abuse and bullying. Please find our RSE Long Term Plan below:
