Terrence Higgins Trust Relationships and Sex Education Campaign

Young people want RSE but they aren’t always getting it. Our research shows that one in seven did not receive any RSE in school at all. 

The quality of RSE varies across Britain, with LGBT issues still not consistently taught as part of RSE.

In England, RSE is only compulsory in maintained secondary schools, but the subject is due to become compulsory in all schools from September 2020.
