  • Compared to a survey run by SEF in 2019, there has been no overall improvement in school RSE
  • For around 1:4 young people there has been no RSE from parents or carers
  • Only 1:6 had regular discussions with parents or carers about RSE
  • During Covid, almost half of young people received no RSE at school or at home during Covid lockdowns.
