In this episode, Hannah is joined by Lisa Hallgarten, who is the Head of Policy and Public Affairs at Brook. Lisa discusses Sexual Health Week 2020: Get Your RSE in Gear, and what the new UK law about mandatory sex and relationships education means for schools and teachers from September 2020. She and Hannah talk about the 30 year campaign to get RSE on the UK curriculum, the guidance released by the government, and what it does (and doesn’t) contain. Finally, Lisa and Hannah discuss the problem with “age-appropriateness” and Lisa gives some tips and resources for teachers.
