Relationships and Health Education (RHE) 


As you may already be aware, the Department for Education has announced changes to Relationships and Health Education following nationwide consultation.

These changes were due to come into effect from September 2020. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic and school closures, we had deferred the implementation of the RHE curriculum. However, by the end of the Summer term 2021 all schools were required to comply with the updated statutory requirements.

We implemented the RHE curriculum in the 2nd half of the Summer term 2021. Sex Education is not statutory in Primary schools including Infant schools and it will not be taught at William Austin Infant School.
