Sex education for all pupils

4th December 2007

A group of leading charities and a teaching union has called for children should be taught about sex and relationships throughout their time in school.

In a letter to the Times newspaper, the Terrence Higgins Trust, the NSPCC and the National Union of Teachers said all pupils were entitled to such lessons and needed to know about health risks and where to get advice. The Government has said that schools were teaching about sex and that teenage pregnancy rates were the lowest for 20 years.
