Parents to be warned about pornographic sex ed in primary schools
30 November 2010
***UPDATE: Worksop meeting CANCELLED due to weather conditions*** Parents to be warned about pornographic sex ed in primary schools 30 November 2010: Extracts from a controversial sex education programme will be screened at a public meeting being held UPDATE: CANCELLED due to weather conditions to alert parents to the dangers of explicit sex education.
The programme under scrutiny is “Living and Growing”, produced by Channel 4.
Used by Worksop primary schools as a resource to teach sex and relationships education (SRE), “Living and Growing” includes a cartoon of sexual intercourse, showing girls how to locate their clitoris and telling them that it feels nice when you touch it.
This material is for children of seven to nine years of age.
Antonia Tully, the organiser of the Safe at School campaign, will advise parents that primary schools are under no legal obligation to deliver SRE, nor are they compelled to take advice from local authorities in their choice of programme for SRE.
Mrs Tully will speak at a public meeting organised by SPUC in Worksop on Wednesday 1 December, 7.30 pm, at The Crossing Church and Centre, Newcastle Street, Worksop. Safe at School is a national campaign run by the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) http://www.spuc.org.uk/campaigns/safeatschool/
