Relationships & Sex Education Survey 2022

Closes 9 Oct 2022

Opened 13 Jun 2022


This survey is for young people in Essex age 11yrs (academic Year 7) – 25yrs.

Welcome to our Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Survey for young people in Essex. The purpose of this survey is to engage with young people in Essex to help us understand how we can ensure that they are supported to have healthy relationships.

Following on from our first RSE survey which ran last summer, gathering the views of 16-25year olds, this year we have continued our work with young people and developed survey questions for the following groups;

  • School Years 7,8 & 9 (Age 11-14 years)
  • School Years 10 & 11 (Age 15-16 years)
  • Young people aged 17-25 years 

There is no need to be embarrassed, this survey is completely anonymous and confidential – this means you can’t be identified from your response, and your answers will be kept safe and secure.

Your responses will be used to help shape and improve young people’s sexual health services within Essex. Please take the time to answer honestly.

As you may be aware Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) is now part of a mandatory curriculum to be taught in schools.

We would like to get your views and understanding of young people’s sexual health needs within Essex, what further information you would like regarding sexual health, and where you like to get this information. 

Essex County Council fully complies with information legislation. If you would like the full details of how we use personal data, and the rights you have about its use, please go to or call 03457 430430.
