Prime Minister: “Children should only receive age-appropriate sex education”


The Prime Minister intends to strengthen guidance on relationships and sex education (RSE) to ensure children are not exposed to inappropriate content, it has been reported.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Rishi Sunak plans to allow parents to view CSR content, including resources provided by outside organisations, and is also considering a review of the Equality Act 2010 to highlight that the protected characteristic of sex makes reference to biological sex rather than gender. .

This would clarify that single-sex spaces would be protected and that men cannot compete in women’s sports. A Downing Street source told the newspaper that protecting women and girls is one of the government’s priorities.


Last month, the Information Commissioner’s Office ruled parents of children at Hatcham College could not view School of Sex Education lecture slides because it compromised the provider’s ‘intellectual property’ sex education.

But the Department for Education’s statutory guidelines currently state: “Schools must ensure that parents know what will be taught and when, and communicate clearly that parents have the right to request that their child be removed from school. all or part of the sex education provided within the framework of statutory CSR”.

He adds: “Parents should be given every opportunity to understand the purpose and content of relationship education and CSR. Good communication and opportunities for parents to understand and ask questions about the school’s approach help build trust in the program.

Gender self-identification

The Equality and Human Rights Commission recently warned that Scottish Government plans to allow people as young as 16 to choose their own legal sex could impact the rest of Great Britain. Brittany.

Writing for online magazine The House, Baroness Falkner de Margravine, head of the EHRC, discussed the potential implications of the presence of two conflicting systems in Britain for obtaining a gender recognition certificate ( RCMP).

Proposed legislation in Scotland makes it much easier to get a GRC – thereby changing the legal sex – by removing the need for medical evidence and reducing the waiting period from two years to three months. It even extends “sex swaps” to 16-year-olds.
