I would just like to clarify a couple of things as it is clear that schools are still giving out wrong information.
There is a reason we able to clearly and confidently say we know far more about this RSE than your school does.
I'll tell you know why we know more.
✴️ We have followed, debated and fought this curriculum every step of the process, we have read every single document, draft, policy, consultation. Kim a criminologist has scrutinised every word. We have privately conversed with the government and have correspondence.
✴️ We also investigated the sex education it's self, spending thousands hours researching. Gathering evidence, on a roller-coaster of discovery of the true scale of what RSE was and where its come from.
✴️ We have spent hours in conversation, attended conferences, attended meeting with the various campaigns that have been fighting this for 2 years. They decided to just wait and see, they believed the teacher who said I won't teach that. They got self stimulation taught to age 6. Their 14 Yr olds are learning fisting, bond age, rimming, group sex.
We have lived and breathed RSE for the last year. Your school has lived and breathed Covid.
We are telling you that your school don't know, we are telling you the government is lying and being deceitful. This is why we are here, it's your job now to tell your teacher who is misinformed what is really happening.
🔴 Wrong information - You can opt out.
Opt out is in place at the present moment. We agree you can opt out right now.
When your school adopts the new curriculum opt out will be removed. YOU HAVE NO PARENTAL RIGHT FROM THIS POINT.
You curriculum and assessment act 2021 has been published - it clearly states this.
***However the new curriculum is being phased in for example pupils in year 8 will not get the curriculum until 2023, Yr 9 2024, Yr 10 2025 etc. This means you could have a child in Yr 7 that you can not withdraw and a child in year 9 you can.
Only the NEW curriculum is mandatory.
🔴 Wrong information - we are already teaching RSE.
No they are not, they are teaching the current sex education which has RSE elements in it to warm people up.
The Curriculum and Assessment Act 2021 clearly states that all teaching of RSE must strictly align with the RSE code. It can not be taught without it. The RSE code has not been published yet. This is all in the current consultation that is open to the public. All we currently know about the RSE code is that UNESCO are providing the guidance for it and its based on their 6 core elements. This document is on the Hwb for you to read. This documents teaches masturbation from age 9. Your school is perfectly capable of reading this also, but they won't they will just repeat to parents what they have been told to say.
Your school CAN NOT promise you that they will not teach something. How can they when local authority are telling schools to tell us parents that they have to teach whatever is in the curriculum.
They have to teach what the RSE code tells them to teach. Your school has not seen the RSE code. Nobody has. This is what we are pissed off about people!!
UNESCO is setting the RSE code. UNESCO is a global comprehensive sexuality education. It is in England, we have shown you their resources, we have shown you their lesson content. We have shown you America which is also UNESCO. We have shown you the the documents showing that the government signed up the the WHO guidence (which promotes masturbation from birth)
Other than the UNESCO document (which don't forget our government is denying is a global document) what has your government or school been able to show you about RSE? What can they tell you about RSE? I don't mean the regurgitated crap they've been told to say. You have been shown and told nothing. Even this consultation is BS.
When you have been presented with all of this and simply will take a teachers word (who has not even glanced for a minute over one single document) that dont worry I wouldn't teach that, then more fool you.
We are not here telling you of a difference of opinion, we are here telling you that parents and teachers are being lied to about RSE.
We know what your school is going to say to you. We have been telling you for months what your school is going to say. That they won't teach it, you can opt out, it isn't sexual.
I have sat in zoom meetings for schools in torfaen over RSE horrified by the misinformation (I'm not going to say lies because they think it's the truth) being told to parents.
Look up the teachers quitting over this or have been sacked over this.
You have absolutely no idea how big and powerful this sex education is and the incredible danger it imposes on our children.
My suggestion to all questions our authentity, our cause, our reasons, our characters. Those who are here just to prove us wrong, to be argumentative.
If you don't know who to believe us, the school or the government. There is a really easy thing you can do to solve that.
Read the information yourself, it's your child's future after all.
Read the curriculum act
Read all the consultations
Read all the guidance
Read government correspondense
Apply critical thinking.
A couple words is all it took for me. Sex ed, mandatory, age 3. I researched my backside off from that moment. I was not going to wait until the law had passed and my child is bring home homework until I wait to see what it is.
If you are a parent that is comfortable talking these things with your child I would have thought you would be the first to look into. Don't you want to see if what they will teach is in line with your morals and values?
It baffles me that parents will give up their parental rights in place of their child having sexual rights. What kind of crazy doors are you opening?? Have you any idea where this leads?
Please open your minds, please do your own research. It's your bloody child for God's sake 😔
