Statutory relationships and health education

On this page: resources, guidance and policy documents to support your school in preparing for statutory relationships and health education.

From September 2020, relationships and health education will become statutory in primary and special schools and relationships and sex education and health education will become statutory in high and special schools . The health improvement team are working with schools across the borough to prepare them for this curriculum change.

Ealing Council have written a letter of endorsement for the statutory relationships, sex and health education guidance (EGfL login required).
