Date lodged: 14 September 2017
To ask the Scottish Government on what date it will launch (a) phase one of and (b) the consultation on its review of personal and social education.
Answered by: John Swinney 26 September 2017
The review of personal and social education (PSE) commenced in July with phase one covering communications and initial exploration of PSE teaching resources. Phase two, covering the thematic review of the delivery of PSE in schools across Scotland, started this month and phase three, which will analyse findings and develop recommendations, is expected to commence in June 2018. Further information on the scope of the review is available on the Scottish Government website at http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Education/Schools/HLivi/PSEreview. This webpage will be updated as the review progresses.
Once the recommendations have been received and considered, we will consider the merits of further consultation.
