Parents rebel over lessons on sex for pupils aged four and plans to teach homosexuality to six-year-olds
A primary school is facing a parents' revolt over the content of sex education classes for children as young as four. Up to 20 families are said to be prepared to withdraw youngsters from the lessons because of concerns they are being sexualised too soon with discussions about homosexuality, masturbation and orgasms. Under the plans, those aged six could be taught about same-sex relationships and the difference between 'good and bad touching'. Topics for ten-year-olds include orgasm and masturbation.
