Education Minister launches consultation on Relationship and Sexuality Education Guidance

The Education Minister, Kirsty Williams AM, has launched a consultation on the revised Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) Guidance for schools in Wales.

Based on recommendations from a report made last year by an expert review panel, the new proposals update the current guidance on RSE.

The update changes the name from the “Sex and Relationship Education” to “Relationship and Sexuality Education”.

RSE includes learning on:

  • different types of relationships, such as familial, non-sexual and sexual relationships,
  • the changing functions of the human body and how it influences behaviour and relationships,
  • social and cultural influences on representations of the body, relationships, physical, mental and emotional health and well-being.

The new proposals include a whole school approach to RSE. A whole school approach is the “effective linking of all elements of an education setting’s provision, policy, staff and community” to provide holistic high quality support for learners.

The announcement was made at a visit to a pioneer school in Swansea which is part of the group developing the Health and Well-Being Area of Learning Experience.

The Education Minister noted that high-quality RSE was at the heart of the Welsh Government strategies Prosperity for All and Education in Wales: Our National Mission.


The consultation ends on 01 April 2019.
