Statutory RSE - are teachers in England prepared?

27 November 2018

The quality of RSE provided in schools in England has been a concern for many years, and numerous surveys and reports have highlighted the importance of training for the staff delivering RSE. 

The Sex Education Forum ran an online survey for 4 weeks, from 3 – 31 October 2018. We asked people currently involved in the teaching of RSE to describe aspects of how they are delivering the subject, and if the training they have accessed is meeting their needs. Ultimately the aim was to create a picture of current provision and need, in order to establish how prepared schools are to deliver high quality RSE to all pupils.
