Local authorities should tell primary schools: No more sex ed in science lessons, says Safe at School

16 September 2013

Schools and parents should be advised that there is no mandatory sex education in science lessons

Local authorities should advise that primary schools will not be permitted to include sex education in Key Stage 1 and 2 science lessons under the new National Curriculum, said the Safe at School campaign, which supports parents facing unacceptable sex education in their child's school.

Antonia Tully of SPUC's Safe at School campaign said: "Every parent should now feel confident that their primary-aged child will not be subjected to graphic information about sex in compulsory science lessons.

"Where local authorities advise schools of the requirements of the national curriculum, from 2014 they must stop advising both schools and parents that there is mandatory sex education in science lessons." [SPUC, 13 September]
