RSHE Update for Headteachers – Governor Training 20 November 2019
07 Nov
Relationships, Sex and Health Education From September 2020, Relationships Education will become compulsory in all primary schools in England and Relationships and Sex Education compulsory in all secondary schools, as well as making Health Education compulsory in all state-funded schools. The DfE is encouraging schools to adopt the statutory guidance early, from September 2019. The London Borough of Newham Local Authority highly values the views of the parental governor community on this topic and is arranging a consultation for parental governors (that is to say parent governors or governors who are parents) at maintained schools. The consultation evening will take place at Francis House 760 Barking Rd, Upton Park, London E13 9PJ on Wednesday 20 November 2019 at 6 – 8pm. Even if early adoption is implemented, schools will still need to follow https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/sex-and-relationship-education until September 2020 with respect to relationships and sex education. For further information, please contact Claire Clinton, claire.clinton@rematters.co.uk.
