Let's talk about sex (education, that is).

The team in Mumsnet Towers want to find out your views about sex education in schools. This is because the government is currently conducting a review into the delivery of Personal, Social, Health and Economics (PSHE) Education in England, which is due to close at the end of November. NB: England, Wales, Scotland and N Ireland all have their own policies but they are all very similar.

The survey is open to all UK Mumsnetters with at least one child.

Please take a few minutes to complete the survey - add your details at the end and you will be entered into a prize draw where one lucky winner will get £50 of Amazon vouchers.

Now DDs primary just need to explain sex in their sex education lessons for Y6 and we'll be getting somewhere.
DD1 said they got lots on puberty, but no mention of the fact that puberty is to prepare your body for sex and babies.
She said her year older BFs late night Guide camp sex talk was much better and far funnier.
Pretty accurate too, from what I gathered.

Done. I am looking forward to the results. I can't talk to my 10yr old dd about sex ed, not because I'm embarrassed about it, but because everytime I broach the subject I get the rolled eyes and the 'mum I don't need to know about that now' talk from her. I bought her a book, though she said she didn't want one, and put it on her bookshelf. I explained it was for when she was ready, or for when someone at school told her something that frightened her or shocked her, she could check to see if it was true. I also said that she could ask me, if it wasn't in the book. I told her I'd probably be a bit embarrassed, cos I'm her mum, but that's how we learn about life. I need school to do this for me...

Had the talk with 5yo DS last night actually. He's known how babies come out for some time but never asked how they get in there. I decided to take matters into my own hands and tell him before he found out nonsense in the playground or asked me in the supermarket hmm. We used the ' Where willy went' book.

Done, but why was there not a question about teaching students about what constitutes Consent? This is especially important.

I try to be as open as i can at an age appropriate level with my dc.
Their primary school does teach sex and relationship education from pre-school level and have written it into their Curriculam for excellence (Scotland) and I attended a meeting that all parents were invited to on how they would be delivering this subject.
I was shocked at the number of parents in the playground complaining that their dc was too young for the subject yet never bothered to attend the meeting.
