Nottingham City Council founded RSE Day in 2018 and continues to lead this nationwide celebration of excellent education around healthy relationships and positive sexual health. The day is a call to action for schools, families, communities and organisations to take an active role in educating in this area and share their fabulous work via events and on social media.
This year’s RSE Day was a great success with a Livestream full of great activities. If you missed it, you can watch the recording on this page and download the supporting resources. You’ll find Nottingham artists, poets and writers setting challenges linked to healthy relationships for children and young people to work on. Scroll down to see the gallery of all the work that shared with us by Nottingham city schools.
You can still download the workshop and activity sheets using the links in the schedule below. Use the recording of the Livestream to see the artists instructions.
It's not too late to your RSE Day work with using #RSEday on social media or tagging us @challengenottm on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

What an amazing day of activities and workshops organised by Nottingham City Council in partnership with ChalleNGe. Thank you to everyone who watched and took part. If you missed the live stream, you can watch it here.
It was a full day of creative workshops around the key relationship themes of communication, cooperation, trust, resilience and respect, all created by local artists and hosted by Jon Rea. You can see the individual artist's workshops on our YouTube channel.

RSE Day began in Nottingham in 2018 as a celebration of positive relationships and sex education happening in the City. The day provides an opportunity for schools, communities and families to explore and discuss healthy relationships, growing up, wellbeing, respect and resilience. Last year, Nottingham City Council partnered with the Sex Education Forum to take RSE Day to a national audience.
The theme for RSE Day 2020 was Books I Love About Love and Read On Nottingham and Nottingham City Libraries created special book lists around the theme. They selected inspiring stories, novels and non-fiction books, which will develop love, kindness, understanding and empathy in children, young people and adults alike.
You'll also find 10 Ideas for RSE Day 2020 for Parents and Carers on the RSE Day website.
