PSHE to become compulsory?

The Telegraph are reporting on the recommendations from the SRE review that happened at the same time as the drug education review that I’ve been involved in.

It looks like there’s movement from the government on PSHE’s place on the curriculum:

Many choose to include it [SRE] as part of personal, social and health education lessons, although the subject is not a compulsory part of the National Curriculum.

Mr Knight said he had received “many strong representations” for making PSHE statutory at all ages to address the problem.

I’ve been told to expect this and the drug education review (and the government responses) to be out later this week.

More when I can say more.
