Don't take Sex Ed back to the 1950s!
Email your MP now!
The Government's proposed science curriculum threatens to water down existing sex education, not strengthen it. This is the only compulsory sex education in primary school. Vital information about the body and sexual health has been left out. As a result, teachers and parents might think that body parts, puberty and sexual health should not be discussed in the classroom. This all threatens to turn the classroom clock back to a time when sex was not discussed. It's not fit for the 21st century.
Please email your MP asking them to help stop these changes and support inclusion of the essentials of sex education in the science curriculum. It is really simple to do as you can use the template letter provided.
