As with other areas of the curriculum, we expect schools to teach the content of the new subjects of relationships education, relationships and sex education and health education when they become mandatory in September 2020. Schools must have regard to the statutory guidance in relation to the subjects, and where they depart from those parts of the guidance, they will need to have good reasons for doing so.

Complaints about the delivery of the curriculum, including individual subjects in the curriculum, are for schools to resolve through their complaints procedures.

Where, during the course of a school inspection, it becomes clear that statutory requirements are not being met, that will inform Ofsted’s overall judgment of a school.
