Healthier pupils; better learners.

12th March 2019

As we have already informed schools in previous posts, from September 2020, subject to parliamentary approval, the following subjects will become compulsory:

  • Relationships Education for primary schools
  • Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) for secondary schools
  • Health Education in all state maintained schools

The Department for Education is looking for schools to act as early adopters of this curriculum and begin teaching the new subjects from September 2019.

"The Department is looking for a strong reference group of schools to work with, leading up to and during the academic year 2019 to 2020, as support and training materials are prepared for full compulsory teaching. This approach allows early adopter schools the opportunity to assist the department to shape the advice for schools”

If selected, you will be helping to shape the way ahead on this curriculum, and will have free places at a national training/conference.The places are first come, first served.

If you wish to apply, this document gives you full details of how to register your interest.  If you have queries, the contact address is rshe.earlyadopters@education.gov.uk

We hope that Cornish schools are able to contribute to this exciting work.
