Statutory PSHE Education by 2020

The PSHE Association’s Programme of Study for PSHE education has three strands:

  • health and wellbeing,
  • relationships
  • and living in the wider world.

Schools are expected to cover all three but it will be mandatory for all schools to deliver health education and relationships and sex education (or ‘relationships education’ in primaries) by 2020.

With statutory status for the majority of PSHE education now confirmed, schools are beginning to review and update their curriculum accordingly.

Draft statutory guidance for RSE, relationships education and health education gives schools an idea of what they will be required to cover.

The PSHE Association has created a free-to-download document outlining how the Programme of Study for PSHE education covers – and goes beyond – the draft guidance.
