Schools are free to cover teaching about road safety as part of their duty to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, including through their Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education provision. Schools can draw on resources available from many providers including, in relation to road safety, the THINK! Campaign developed by the Department for Transport (DfT). Information on the campaign is available at the following link: https://www.think.gov.uk.
During the stakeholder engagement process and call for evidence about the curriculum content for Relationships Education and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and about the future status of PSHE, the Department for Education engaged with 90 organisations and other Government Departments, including the DfT.
On 25 February, following a 17 week consultation, the Department published an updated draft of the guidance on Relationships Education, RSE and Health Education, and laid the regulations for debate in Parliament.
