RSHE stands for relationships, sex and health education.
Relationships education has been compulsory for learners in primary education since September 2020, while secondary schools are required to teach learners about relationships and sex education (RSE). Health educations is now compulsory in all schools too.
For primary-aged learners, the subject should put in place the key building blocks for healthy, respectful relationships focusing on family and friendships, in all contexts, including online. This should sit alongside the essential understanding of how to be healthy.
For secondary-aged learners, teaching should build on this and develop learners' understanding of health (with an increased focus on risk areas such as drugs and alocohol) as well as introducing knowledge about intimate relationships and sex including how to have positive and healthy sexual relationships.
