Comment on today’s High Court case on Relationships and Sexuality Education in Wales

Campaigners against Wales' new relationships and sexuality education (RSE) curriculum are set to have their legal challenge heard in the High Court today and tomorrow.

Commenting, Welsh Conservative Shadow Education Minister, Laura Anne Jones MS said:

“It is understandable why tensions are so high regarding the delivery of the new RSE code. Resources used to deliver its objectives are clearly not age appropriate. The lack of clarity and openness from the Welsh Labour Government, has resulted in this court case, and many disgruntled and worried parents and carers the length and breadth of Wales.

“Sex education needed updating in Wales, but the way ‘gender over sex’ is being forced on our children, is not ok. It’s not fact-based learning. Creating more awareness, at an age-appropriate time is welcome, but making this Labour Government’s version of RSE mandatory, with no consent from parents is not right.

“Welsh Conservatives believe in parental choice and the right for parents to opt their child out of RSE lessons.”

Five claimants representing parents and grandparents in Wales are taking the Welsh Government to the High Court in an attempt to remove its new relationships and sex education (RSE) from the mandatory part of Wales' curriculum.
