Learning for Life – SRE
From September 2019, sex and relationship education (SRE) will become compulsory for all secondary schools, while primary schools will have to teach relationships education.
Good quality, age-appropriate sex and relationship education is vital. It is known to reduce unwanted pregnancies, to reduce the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and equip young people with the language and tools to be clear about personal boundaries and understand appropriate and inappropriate behaviour, to be able to resist pressure assertively and to know whom to talk to and how to ask for help if and when they need it.
Teaching SRE is vital – done well, it is enriching and enjoyable for teachers and pupils alike. It also helps schools fulfil their duties to protect, safeguard and promote the wellbeing of their pupils.

The consensus in support of good quality sex and relationship education (SRE) from young people, teachers, parents and carers, teaching unions, the voluntary sector and government is stronger than ever. We want teachers, schools and other practitioners to have access to the most up-to-date references when looking for further information and advice.
Teachers tell us they want to update their planning and teaching of SRE. The core aims of this course are to:
- To explore the government’s new proposals for compulsory SRE education and find out exactly what you are expected to teach from Sept 2019.
- To gain practical examples and hear from teachers and outside providers to develop a toolkit for teaching a range of relevant SRE topics.
