There are lots of opportunities within the personal, social and health education (PSHE) curriculum to address aspects of sexual exploitation. The PSHE framework sets out a structured programme of learning opportunities to help young people lead confident, healthy and responsible lives as individuals and members of society.
Education on child sexual exploitation should be delivered as part of broader sex and relationships education (SRE/ RSE) within the PSHE and citizenship curriculum. SRE/ RSE is 'learning about sex and sexuality, emotions, relationships, sexual health and ourselves'.
