The grading of inspections is a matter for Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector. Ofsted’s school inspection handbook clearly sets out how schools will be evaluated. Sex education forms part of the statutory ‘basic’ curriculum of secondary schools. When teaching sex education, it is a statutory requirement for schools (including academies through their funding agreements) to have regard to the Secretary of State’s Sex and Relationship Guidance.
Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) is compulsory in all maintained secondary schools and many primary schools also teach it in an age-appropriate way. The Government also expects academies and free schools to deliver SRE as part of their provision of a broad and balanced curriculum. Any state-funded school teaching SRE must have regard to the Secretary of State’s SRE guidance (2000).
