Rejected petition Give parents/Carers the right to opt their child out of all aspects of RSE.
As concerned parents and UK citizens we want to call on our rights as parents/carers to be able to choose to opt our children out of all aspects of the new Relationship Education & Relationship & Sex Education curriculum part) that will become mandatory in all UK schools from Sept 2020.
We are concerned that various sexual ideologies will use the new RE/RSE curriculum
We have grave concerns about the physical, psychological and spiritual implications of teaching children as young as 4 about concepts such as gender identity and we have concerns regarding teaching children about sexual pleasure, sexual consent, contraception and abortion.
Uphold a parent’s or primary carer's right to choose how to educate their child in RE/RSE
