Why you need to back mandatory SRE:
It allows you to be in control
"I think learning about sex and relationship education is really important as it allows you to be in control and stop people taking advantage of you." - Ambrin, 15, practising Muslim
From Muslim to Christian beliefs, from girls to boys, and from diverse sexual orientations – these young people all have one thing in common. They’re calling for mandatory sex and relationships education.
What the UK public says about SRE:
Here's why I'm standing with thousands of my peers across the country
SRE - it's more than just sex ed, it’s about relationships too. But what does that mean?
Who’s supporting the campaign
“Children are clear they want SRE to be compulsory and are calling for the Government to help make that happen. Cyberbullying, online abuse and sexual harassment in schools are all part of teenage life in Britain today. Children are asking Government to put compulsory SRE in place to help them cope better and to feel safer.”
Maria Miller MP, Conservative party, Chair, Women and Equalities Select Committee
“The demand for compulsory PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) is growing by the week. Not only do employers support it, but MPs from across the House of Commons do too. There is no more excuse for hesitation – the Government should back this bill today.”
Caroline Lucas MP, Green Party
“It’s really important that the next generation of young people get the life skills they need to have healthy sex and relationships, by ensuring their sex education includes consent, LGBT relationships, STIs and HIV, not just reproduction and body parts”
Jess Phillips MP, Labour Party
