Recommendations of the Sex and Relationships Education Expert Panel.

This report sets out the findings of the Expert Panel convened to examine the current provision of sex and relationships education (SRE) and how schools can be better supported to deliver it consistently and to a high standard.

The panel’s work included consideration of the current and future provision of the sex and relationships education curriculum in schools, the establishment of profession learning pathways for new and existing members of the education workforce and mechanisms to share best practice related to the teaching of SRE topics.

The report makes 11 recommendations directed at Welsh Government which focus on the status of SRE in the curriculum, professional learning and the availability of support and resources.

The Cabinet Secretary for Education will now be considering these recommendations and will respond in the New Year.

The full evidence report “informing the future of the Sex and Relationships Education in Wales” supports the findings and recommendations which can be found on Cardiff University Website.
