Explicit lessons in school are priming your children for sex, SPUC warns Worksop parents at public meeting London, 10 February 2011: Dozens of worried parents attended a meeting in Worksop yesterday evening.
Antonia Tully of the Safe at School campaign gave a presentation of the widely-used sex education programme “Living and Growing”, published by Channel Four. Mrs Tully showed horrified parents extracts from the DVDs in the programme, including an animation of sexual intercourse in two positions; a graphic child birth scene; and a section telling boys of 10-11 years old that masturbation is something everyone does and that it “does you no harm”.
Parents also saw clips which promote homosexuality, with footage of same-sex couples kissing. Mrs Tully explained to parents how this resource for primary schools effectively primes children for teenage sex.
Trevor Bean, Group Manager for the Education Improvement Service at Nottingham City Council, was present throughout the meeting and said that he would not want his children to see such material.
The Safe at School campaign is an initiative of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) http://www.spuc.org.uk/campaigns/safeatschool/ For more information about this meeting or the national campaign please telephone 020 7091 7091 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
