Preparing for statutory health education

From September 2020 health education becomes compulsory for all state funded primary and secondary schools, under new guidance on relationships, sex (RSE) and health education.


DfE guidance materials links:

  • Guides for parents of primary and secondary age pupils that schools can use to communicate with them about teaching relationships and health education. 

  • Statutory guidance on RSHE


The change is to support all young people to be happy, healthy and safe and to equip them for adult life and to make a positive contribution to society. There is a strong emphasis on mental wellbeing in both primary and secondary phase.
