March 01, 2017: Sex education to be made compulsory in UK Catholic schools
A move to require sex education in all schools in the United Kingdom has been introduced in Parliament, sparking opposition from some Catholics.
The proposal, advanced by 23 Members of Parliament, would require the introduction of a sex-education program in Catholic schools, as a required part of the National Curriculum. The exact contents of the program have not yet been revealed, but Catholic activists fear that the curriculum would encourage acceptance of sexual activity outside marriage.
March 02, 2017: UK prelate welcomes government announcement on sex education
Archbishop Malcolm McMahon, chairman of the Catholic Education Services in the United Kingdom, welcomed a government announcement that it plans to update the Relationship and Sex Education curriculum in the nation’s schools.
“Catholic schools already teach age-appropriate Relationship and Sex Education in both primary and secondary schools,” he said on March 1. “We additionally welcome the Government’s commitment to protect parental right of withdrawal and involve parents in all stages of the development and delivery of RSE in all schools.”
“We look forward to working closely with the Government to shape any new guidance to enable Catholic schools to continue to deliver outstanding RSE, in accordance with parents’ wishes and Church teaching,” he added.
