Schools in England will teach LGBT-inclusive relationship and sex education starting 2020, the Department of Education announced as a part of the school curricula reform in the country that is going to be more focused on mental and physical health issues being taught, as well as relationships aspects. The curriculum will adapt according to the pupils’ age—primary schools pupils will receive relationships education, while secondary school students will learn about relationships and sex education (RSE) and this is going to be updated for the first time for almost 2 decades.
