Response from Department of Education to Lib Dem motion on age-appropriate sex and relationships education

At the Full Council Meeting on 30th March, the Liberal Democrat Group moved a motion calling for the government to provide appropriate support to schools to deliver age-appropriate, LGBT-inclusive, comprehensive relationships education (in primary schools) and sex and relationships education (in secondary schools).

The council have now heard back from the Department for Education. Whilst they are not committing to all of the things we called for – for example, ensuring faith schools and academies deliver this to a common standard – they do set out the government’s current thinking in this area.

The message is attached below.
