Share this article


Primary and secondary school pupils are to be given classes on sexual consent.

The Education Minister has announced a major review of Relationships and Sexuality Education in schools.

Richard Bruton has asked the National Council on Curriculum and Assessment to specifically consider a number of areas including:

  • Consent, what it means and its importance; 
  • Developments in contraception;
  • Healthy, positive sexual expression and relationships;
  • Safe use of the internet;
  • Social media and its effects on relationships and self-esteem;
  • LGBTQ+ matters.

All schools are required to teach RSE but the course can be altered to suit a school's ethos.
