Relationships and Sex Education: The Evidence
The Sex Education Forum have released their latest briefing which aims to provide an accessible and accurate summary of the latest research evidence relating to relationships and sex education (RSE), particularly the contribution of RSE to behaviour change. This document is an update to their previous evidence briefing (2015).
The briefing includes sections on what RSE aims to achieve; what children and young people say; a summary of the latest research evidence about the impact of RSE on young people's health and well-being; and the features of effective RSE.
Alongside the full briefing, which is 14 pages long (plus a full list of references) they have produced a 'quick guide' featuring the main points. Select from the one and two page versions, which include identical content. These may be useful to sharing with a wide range of people such as parents and carers, governors and school staff who are less directly involved in RSE.
This publication is shared free of charge and you can download it from the Sex Education Forum website.
