The Herts for Learning Roadmap to September 2020 mandatory Relationships and Sex Education

Support for schools for responding to mandatory requirements in delivering:

  • Primary – Relationships Education
  • Secondary – Relationships and Sex Education
  • and Cross-phase – Health Education

In response to the new mandatory changes in delivering Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) coming into force from 2020, the Herts for Learning Wellbeing team are offering schools, academies and MATs a series of training opportunities and consultancy services aimed to equip their staff with the knowledge and teaching strategies to start delivering the new curriculum from September 2019.


FSRH-RCOG abortion care factsheet to support RSE lessons

The abortion care factsheet is a free resource for professionals in secondary schools to use in relationships and sex education (RSE) lessons. It aims to ensure that professionals involved in educating young people have a factually accurate, unbiased and evidence-based source of information about abortion in the UK.


Home Office Disrespect Nobody Campaign

The aim of the campaign is to prevent young people, both boys and girls aged 12 to 18 years old, from becoming perpetrators and victims of abusive relationships.

For 2018, the focus of the campaign will be consent, sexting and personal boundaries, which are the issues many young people need more education and information on. All campaign advertising including radio, video-on-demand and social media, directs young people to the website  where they can get further information and the details of organisations which can provide help and support.

The Home Office have produced a range of partner support materials to help you use the resources with the young people that you work with and promote it within your local area. These include posters, social media assets and materials developed specifically for LGBT young people.

Campaign assets are available to download from:
