The Department for Education introduced compulsory Relationships Education for primary children from September 2020. It also became compulsory for all schools to teach Health Education. The purpose of these subjects is to support all young people to be happy, healthy and safe –  to equip them for adult life and to help support children to make a positive contribution to society.

As part of this, all schools are required to consult with parents when developing and reviewing their policies for Relationships Education, which will inform decisions on when and how certain content is covered.
