We are encouraging everyone to celebrate healthy, diverse, relationships during Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) Day.

RSE day is on the 30 June and this year the theme is ‘Celebrating differences - everyone can sparkle’.

This aspect of RSE is important to:

  • support the positive mental health of children and young people
  • foster respect for and appreciation of our differences, and
  • ensure young people get the support they need.

RSE day is an opportunity to share what works well, reflect on success, and offers the chance for everyone to get involved. Find out more about RSE day 

This year Derbyshire schools are working towards the 'Building Effective Relationships Together' Award.

Our Public Health department commissions this award to support the teaching of RSE in schools.

Eight schools have achieved the Bronze Award so far and some will receive their Bronze Award Certificates on RSE day.

Our Cabinet Member for Health and Communities Councillor Carol Hart said:

“RSE teaches young people to respect themselves and others. It also helps young people to mature, build their confidence and self-esteem.

“Learning about healthy relationships, staying safe and sexual health is important. Good RSE helps to ensure that young people can make healthy, safe, and informed choices.
