The Department has considered the role of sex and relationship education (SRE) as part of its review of personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education. Experts are best placed to provide schools with up-to-date materials and advice on changing technologies that fit within the framework of our sex and relationship education guidance. This means schools can always access the most current advice and guidance on every emerging issue.

The PSHE Association has recently updated its guidance for schools on developing and improving their SRE policies. The Sex Education Forum also has a range of useful resources to help schools improve their SRE programmes, as do other organisations which seek to raise standards in SRE education.
