Childnet, as part of the UK Safer Internet Centre, is consulting schools about best practice and gaps in how schools embed online safety within Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) and Relationships and Sex (RSE) Education.
The context
It is essential that RSE and PSHE are fit for the digital age, covering issues such as online friendship, cyberbullying, online sexual exploitation, peer pressure online, healthy digital relationships, sexting and pornography.

Now is an important moment to influence this:

1.     For the first time from September 2019 it will be compulsory for primary-aged children at school in England to be taught Relationships Education and for all secondary-school children to be taught Relationships and Sex Education (RSE).

2.     The Department for Education is considering whether to also make Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education compulsory in all schools in England.

3.     Kirsty Williams, Cabinet Secretary for Education established an expert panel to provide advice and support to the Welsh Government on issues relating to the delivery of Healthy Relationships education within the current Welsh curriculum in March 2017.

Have your say

By taking part in this consultation you can help to shape RSE and PSHE education to ensure it reflects children’s digital lives.

We are very interested in finding examples of best practice in schools across the UK around this and also to identify gaps and challenges.

We are inviting schools to complete the following short survey which should take about 15 minutes.
