A comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education curriculum makes a vital contribution to the work schools do to promote the health, wellbeing and safety of their pupils. From September 2020 a large majority of the PSHE education curriculum will become statutory as the Department for Education is introducing compulsory Relationships Education for primary pupils, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) for secondary pupils and Health Education for all schools.
This session will provide an overview of the PSHE education curriculum with particular reference to the new statutory requirements. Governors will leave with an understanding of steps to take to prepare for the statutory health education, relationships education and RSE in time for September 2020. Governors will also be advised on questions to ask and how they can support their school to ensure pupils develop the knowledge and skills they need to live happy, healthy and safe lives in modern Britain.
