Last week, Kat, our MD was in Parliament with long-standing client, Brook to lobby the Government to take an evidence-based approach to Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) Guidance for young people in schools during its review in 2023. Hosted by Maria Miller, DBE the event was set up in response to vocal opposition to inclusive Relationships and Sex Education. It is vital that any changes to the guidance continue to support – and not hamper – teachers’ provision of high-quality RSHE in our schools.
RSHE was made a mandatory topic in 2017 with mass cross-party support. In 2019, 538 MPs voted in favour of the statutory guidance: guidance that was informed by, and had widespread support from, organisations across health, education, safeguarding and faith groups.
The guidance is now being reviewed.
Part of the video evidence submitted to support the RSHE Guidance review was co-created by Eggu:
Brook wants the Government to take an evidence-based approach and use this opportunity to build on the 2019 guidance so that it is a practical tool for teachers which enables them to provide the RSHE that children and young people want and need.
