On 20th December last year, the Government announced a public consultation to formulate new proposals for ‘Relationships Education’ in primary schools, and ‘Sex and Relationships Education’ in secondary schools. The results of the consultation will probably be enshrined in law and will affect our Catholic schools. You have a chance to tell the Department of Education to halt the over-sexualisation of our children. At present, the Government’s proposals include compulsory (i.e., without parental agreement) lessons for children between five and eleven, covering homosexual relationships, same-sex ‘marriage’, and transgenderism.
