  • 88% of teachers as well as five leading teaching and education unions, including the NUT and NAHT
  • 85% of business leaders support statutory PSHE education according to a YouGov survey
  • 100 leading organisations including six royal medical colleges, the NSPCC and the British Red Cross
  • Parliamentarians across the political spectrum including the Commons Education Committee
