There are several concerns with sex education in schools. It is not compulsory for all - only local authority maintained secondary schools are required to have compulsory sex education lessons. Children do not need to attend all of the classes (if their parents don't want them to). The scope of lessons can be limited too - essentially a biology discussion and no requirement to mention social media issues, online dating and sharing pictures.

Understandably, there have been calls for the law to change. Clearly the matter needs to be handled senstively but it is crucial that any changes are aligned to the current issues faced by children who are exposed to the dangers of the online world and their associated pressures.
