Parents to hear about sex ed in primary schools at public meeting

3 February 2011

Parents to hear about sex ed in primary schools at public meeting London, 3 February 2011: Extracts from a controversial sex education programme will be screened at a public meeting being held in Worksop, Notts., 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. Antonia will speak at a public meeting organised by SPUC in Worksop on Wednesday 9 February, 7.30 pm, at The Crossing Church and Centre, Newcastle Street, Worksop. For more information about this meeting or the national campaign please contact: SPUC, Safe at School, 3 Whitacre Mews, Stannary Street, London SE11 4AB Tel: 020 7091 7091 Email: Visit our website at:
