The DCSF has today published the report on Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) in schools. They have also published the Government's response to the group's report...

The steering group’s headline recommendation is that PSHE should be made statutory and be supported by a statutory programme of study (PoS) – in order to give it increased status/priority in schools. The Government has accepted the arguments for statutory PSHE and agreed to undertake a review – headed by Sir Alasdair MacDonald – to consider how to turn the decision that PSHE should have statutory status into a practicable way forward.
