A Review of the UNESCO & WHO Standards Comprehensive Sexuality Education
"This is a review of two standards documents produced by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) respectively, which underpin the global initiative for Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE), currently promoted by UNESCO’s ‘Foundation or Life and Love Campaign.’ This review is not an argument for or against responsible, age-appropriate sex and relationships education in schools. It is an analysis of current global standards and approaches to sexuality education. The review was one of conceptual analysis taken from a safeguarding perspective."

A framework for policy makers, educational and health authority specialists (2010). This document promotes Comprehensive Sexuality Education from birth. Please read the matrix carefully (page 40). This is important because this is the document all 4 UK governments agreed to, as indicated above.
The Curriculum and Assessment (Wales) Act 2021. According to this Act RSE is a mandatory subject from age 3-16 with no parental opt out. It states Ministers do not have to consult parents if they do not believe it is necessary. This type of legislation is usually the end of the road, if your country do not have it now they soon will.
Sexual and Reproductive Rights of Children
One of the main features of Comprehensive Sexuality Education is sexual rights. Th Welsh Government removed this information from our petition. Here in Wales Children's Rights override parental rights, children are encouraged to exercise rights over parents, this will include the sexual and reproductive rights as referenced in UNESCO (2018). Scotland are currently pushing these rights in their schools.
