PSE and WRE in the Basic Curriculum: Circular 13/03
The Education Act 2002 requires the curriculum for every maintained school in Wales to include a Basic Curriculum comprising religious education, sex education (in secondary schools and in special schools for pupils provided with secondary education) and the National Curriculum for Wales. The Act also provides powers for the National Assembly to add further requirements to the Basic Curriculum.
On 26 March 2003 the National Assembly for Wales approved The Basic Curriculum for Wales (Amendment) Order 2003. The Order adds two new requirements to the Basic Curriculum - Personal and Social Education (PSE) and Work-Related Education (WRE).
PSE will form part of the Basic Curriculum for all registered pupils at maintained schools who are of compulsory school age, with effect from 1 September 2003.
