RSE is taught through years 1-10.
Schools have flexibility around the content and delivery of their RSE. The way RSE is taught is determined by the school that’s teaching it. The Ministry of Education provides Guidelines to support schools with their programme.
Schools must consult their community every two years on the implementation of the health education curriculum — including their RSE delivery.
Quality RSE celebrates the diversity of rangatahi, their whānau, and their communities. Quality RSE supports rangatahi of all genders, sexual orientations, abilities, cultures, ethnicities, and religions.
