The Department is committed to supporting schools to deliver high quality teaching of relationships education in primary schools, relationships and sex education in secondary schools, and health education in all state-funded schools. The Department has committed to investing in a programme of support for schools to deliver these subjects and this will continue into 2020/21, including implementation guidance, access to high quality resources and training support. We are working closely with schools and teachers to develop this programme of support, so that it’s suited to their needs.
