Completed petition Remove RSE from the mandatory element of the Curriculum Bill 2020.
Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) is part of a Global Roll out of Sexuality Education which is not appropriate for this country. It sexualises children, fails to safeguard, read's like models of offending, has barriers to disclosure, and the local authority departments involved lack adequate training to spot the signs of Child Sexual Abuse, Exploitation, Harmful Sexual Behaviour, And much, more! In addition to that we have evidence those involved in the Welsh Curriculum lack knowledge of this global roll out.
We are fighting the legislation not an education. No safeguarding measures in place. The research is wholly inadequate throughout. Here are some links to articles, websites and some suggested research topics which are about sexuality education:

The Petitions Committee decided not to refer this petition for a debate
The Committee decided not to refer the petition for a debate because of scrutiny being applied to the Curriculum and Assessment (Wales) Bill by the Children, Young People and Education Committee, the opportunities available to Members to propose amendments to the Bill, and the fact that the inclusion of RSE in the Curriculum had already been debated in Plenary as part of scrutiny of the Bill: https://business.senedd.wales/mgIssueHistoryHome.aspx?IId=28836
