Will the coronavirus and school closures have an impact on the introduction of statutory Relationships Education, RSE and Health Education from September?

The Department for Education recently issued an update via PSHE. In summary, the statutory requirement to provide these aspects of PSHE education is still in place from September, and schools should continue to prepare for this date where possible. However, due to the coronavirus and closures, schools who are not in a position to implement fully from September have been granted some leeway, and now have until Summer term 2021 to do so.

PSHE have campaigned long and hard for statutory status, so are delighted to still be on course for September but at the same time fully agree with the DfE that the option of delay in a minority of cases is sensible given the extremely unusual position schools find themselves in, and the pressures on them to adapt.
