Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) is a service which can be provided by our sexual health team. From September 2020, new legislation makes RSE mandatory in secondary schools.
This service is free to alternative education providers in Stoke-on-Trent, and can be provided at a cost to other venues in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire. In South Staffordshire a free sexual health overview is available, please see the details below. This service is not currently available in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.
All of our sessions are LGBT+ inclusive and allow learners opportunity to explore and discuss differing cultural and religious beliefs around sex and relationships. The team are always willing to work with venues to meet specific needs.
