DfES 2004: SRE Education (Schools’ Responsibilities)

This factsheet clarified for schools their responsibilities for addressing sex and sexuality within Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) following the repeal of ‘Section 28’. Although Section 28 did not apply to schools, it caused confusion over what could be taught about sexual orientation. In 2004 the factsheet reminded schools of what the Government’s Sex and Relationship Education Guidance said about dealing with issues of sexuality and points to further guidance and sources of information.
