The Department is committed to enabling schools to deliver high quality relationships education at primary level, relationships and sex education at secondary level, and health education in all schools. In order to determine our approach and the funding needed, the Department is currently seeking views through a consultation to determine the right school support package. This will consider curriculum design, training programmes and teaching materials to complement the content set out in the draft guidance. The consultation is available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/relationships-and-sex-education-and-health-education.

The Department will continue to work with schools, unions, other education providers (such as multi-academy trusts and dioceses) and expert organisations such as subject associations to ensure schools get the support they need.
