Give parents the right to opt their child out of Relationships and Sex Education
Following the success of the Citizen Go Petition there is now a very important petition directly to the Government which is rapidly gaining support.
The details of the petition are shown below:
We believe it is the parent’s fundamental right to teach their child RSE topics or to at least decide who teaches them and when and how they are taught. We want the right to opt our children out of RSE when it becomes mandatory in Sept 2020.
We have grave concerns about the physical, psychological and spiritual implications of teaching children about certain sexual and relational concepts proposed in RSE and believe that they have no place within a mandatory school curriculum.
We believe the above factors have not been given enough consideration and that many of the RSE resources being produced by lobby groups and external organisations will actually cause more harm than good, particularly when child development and psychological factors are considered.
ParentPower encourages parents to SIGN NOW and let as many people as possible know about this very important petition.
