Question for Women and Equalities

UIN 183247, tabled on 19 April 2021

Our schools and teachers are committed to supporting all pupils to thrive and reach their potential in a safe and respectful environment.

The Department for Education is also rolling out new inclusive statutory Relationships Education in all primary schools and Relationships and Sex Education in all secondary schools, so that children leave school prepared for life in modern, diverse, Britain.

As the Equality and Human Rights Commission is a non-departmental public body, it is for them to comment on any guidance they plan to publish. We are not able to provide further information on this.
