We expect schools to provide a broad programme of well planned and age appropriate sex and relationships education (SRE) through non statutory Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education. As part of this programme we expect secondary schools to teach about human sexuality and types of relationships that exist within society, including homosexual relationships.
