In March 2017, the Government announced that alongside the introduction of Relationships Education, at primary level, and Relationships and Sex Education, at secondary level, the Secretary of State for Education would have the power, via regulations, to make to make Personal Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) statutory in all schools.

The Department is currently finalising an assessment of the evidence gathered during a wide-ranging engagement process to shape the content of the new subjects and determine the future status of PSHE. Results of this process will be published shortly, alongside a consultation on the content draft regulations and accompanying statutory guidance, before laying the regulations in the House for debate.
