At this half-way point in the academic year, the Department for Education (DfE) has shared a fresh message about implementing RSHE. Statutory status officially began in September 2020, with expectations about full preparedness lengthened to summer 2021 to deal with the impact of Covid-19. The message helpfully encourages schools to keep on going with their preparations through the spring and summer terms, and to continue consultation and policy development processes alongside curriculum delivery to meet pupils’ needs. 

The full DfE message and our comment is available from our website.
