Right to Withdraw Your Child from RSE Lessons

Parents have the legal right to withdraw their child from all Relationship Education/RSE lessons until 1st September 2020. After this date you still have the automatic right to withdraw your child from Sex Education in primary schools (except what is taught in science lessons) and the right to request your child is excused from Sex Education at secondary schools.

Please find a template withdrawal letter you can use and adapt to request your child’s withdrawal. (Thanks to Parent Power for the legal bits!)
