What about sex education?

Sex education is not compulsory in primary schools, beyond what is laid out in the National Curriculum for Science:

● Year 1: Identify, name, draw and label the basic parts of the human body and say which part of the body is associated with each sense.

● Year 2: Notice that animals, including humans, have offspring which grow into adults

● Year 5: Describe the life process of reproduction in some plants and animals; describe the changes as humans develop to old age, including the changes experienced in puberty.

The Kapow Primary scheme of work includes two Year 6 lessons which parents have the opportunity to withdraw their children from all/part of the lesson:

Safety and the changing body: Lesson 5: Conception and Lesson 6: Pregnancy and birth.
