Antonia Tully, national co-ordinator of SPUC's Safe at School campaign told the media:
"This is an outrageous development. Sex education is not compulsory and it has never been a statutory part of the science curriculum. Schools have no legal or moral right to dictate what parents must be teach their children about sex."Mrs Tully told parents that they are the primary educators of their children on sexual matters. She urged parents to exercise their legal right to withdraw their children from sex education lessons if they were unhappy about the content of the lessons. She also explained that the new National Curriculum for primary school science makes it clear that human sexual reproduction is not part of the statutory requirements.
