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.

Programme structure

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.


The Aims

Teachers tell us they want to update their planning and teaching of SRE. The core aims of this course are to:

  • help to explore how to implement government changes by considering and using practical lesson ideas relevant to the different classroom contexts you may face.
  • learn in a relaxed environment what will be expected of you now that the government has made RSE compulsory.
  • explore how to teach a range of SRE topics learning from one another and the eclectic settings we teach SRE in.
