Schools’ increasing role as sex education provider

Young people's main source of sex information has undergone a profound shift from the home and towards school lessons.

School surveys since 1983, by the Schools Health Education Unit (SHEU), have asked young people about their sources of sex education.

New data has been added showing the continuing shift from home towards school lessons.

"Thanks for presenting the survey to local schools this morning, I just wanted to thank you for such interesting and thought-provoking information.  
I’m really glad we were able to take part - the information (particularly headline data and differences) will support us to have some really interesting questions with the Year group as a whole about the sense they’re making of this; what they think it might mean in terms of changes they might make, and what they need to support them in this."
