ALERT! - RSE IS COMING TO A SCHOOL NEAR YOU!

Under current UK sex education policy, we have seen the UK claim the prize for:

  • the highest number of teenage pregnancies in Europe
  • sexually transmitted infections in UK teenagers at epidemic levels (many incurable)
  • an alarming increase in child-on-child sexual assaults.

Rather than dealing with any of these issues, the new Relationships and Sex Education (R(S)E) curriculum could be even more harmful for children.

While we support the government's resolve to end bullying in schools, and acknowledge the need for children to understand about diversity, we do not believe that the state should take other people's children and teach them unhelpful ideologies that their parents (and science) disagree with.

Confusing friendship

Teaching children from a very early age, that they might be one of 2% of the population who have sexual love for their own sex, hijacks and potentially perverts the course of natural child development. For example, children of primary school age are generally friends with members of the same sex. If a young girl "loves" her same-sex best friend, she could be led to think, utterly erroneously, "I am gay".

Gender confusion in children

"Choose your gender"

Children will be told "You can be a girl or a boy". Unsupported by scientific evidence, this is confusing and potentially very distressing for a child. To accommodate gender dysphoria, the mental disorder which affects only a tiny fraction of one percent of the population, R(S)E "teaching" will potentially traumatise millions of children.

Sexualising Children

Some recommended resources describe sexual intercourse to children in infant school. Others introduce nudity, graphic images and terms like anal intercourse and masturbation to Juniors. First sexual intercourse will be encouraged from the age of 13 ‐ which is illegal. No moral framework will be offered for any of this behaviour.

UN & WHO promoting radical sexualisation of kids

Much of the ideology behind the R(S)E curriculum in the UK comes from Comprehensive Sexuality Education. Alarmingly, this is endorsed at the highest levels by organisations like the United Nations and the World Health Organisation. You can find out more about this dangerous ideology in the short video below:

The R(S)E curriculum is ill-advised, confusing and unhelpful. It will prematurely sexualise children. It is far too much, too young. Parents, as lawful primary educators of their children, are best positioned to decide how and when these subjects should be approached ‐ not the state.

NOT HAPPY? TAKE ACTION!

USE PARENTAL HUMAN RIGHTS

According to the Human Rights Act 1998, all education is to be in conformity with parents' own religious and philosophical convictions. (Protocol 1 Article 2 European Convention on Human Rights of 1950 now incorporated into UK law).

CLAIM THE RIGHT TO WITHDRAW YOUR CHILD FROM SEX EDUCATION

Exemption from sex education is currently provided for in Section 405 Education Act 1996. This parental right will be taken away for secondary schools under the new R(S)E legislation.

USE SCHOOL POLICIES ‐ ESPECIALLY WITH OTHER PARENTS

Ask to see the new curriculum and the resources (including videos) that will be used.

If you are at all concerned, request the school provides suitable teaching. If this is not forthcoming from consultation, you can withdraw your primary school child.

Please note, schools are also accountable for standard equality and diversity policies that quote respect for religious faith.

ABOUT THE RSE SCHOOL GATE CAMPAIGN

Spread the word to parents and carers about the serious problems of the new R(S)E curriculum, urging them to consult their schools about it.

Just half an hour leafleting with a friend at a school gate, when the children are picked up by their parents and carers, can inform hundreds of families and direct them to organisations that will give them help and support. Acting together will prove an unstoppable force to secure parental rights and the sound education and safety of our children.

Join the people who are taking the simple action of sharing this information at school pick-up time.
