The Legislation

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.
