Welcome to the new service page for Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (RSHE) which we aim to be a source of information and support to schools for the new statutory curriculum. Additional materials will be uploaded to this page in the future.


From September 2020, Relationships Education (Primary), Relationships and Sex Education (RSE - Secondary) and Health Education is statutory in all schools; its aim is to support all young people to stay safe and prepare for life. High quality PSHE provision can help equip young people with the necessary knowledge, attitudes, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.
We can support schools with preparing for Relationships Education (Primary), Relationships and Sex Education (RSE - Secondary) and Health Education:

  • Guidance with curriculum and signposting to resources.
  • Policy development.
  • Providing training for staff.

Further information about additional support and expertise for schools to deliver effective and evidence-based education to improve the health and wellbeing of pupils can be found on the Improving Health and Wellbeing Service page.
This includes access to support to deliver other health promoting activities, including the Healthy Schools London programme, The Daily Mile, Sugar Smart Lewisham, Youth Mental Health First Aid and Suicide Prevention training.
