In September 2020, sex education becomes compulsory in all secondary schools in England, which has sparked calls for an overhaul of lessons in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland too. The government have till august 2019 to sign off on the new curriculum.

What we teach in school matters. We need sex education that teaches about:
1. Consent: Until we teach young people how to ask for and give consent, we can’t hope to change rape culture.
2. LGBTQ+ experiences: If we want to live in a society free of homophobia and transphobia we need sex education that covers a range of experiences.
3. Online sex and relationships: Young people live so much of their lives online, schools need to give them the tools and support to be safe to themselves and each other.

Already hundreds of Level Up members have responded to the government’s consultation, but that’s not going to be enough to counter the calls for celibacy to be taught to protect young people.

Do you think young people should be given better sex education? If so, please can you take two minutes to sign our petition?
