In its response to the new Department for Education proposals, EVAW says it is “deeply disappointed” that Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) are not set to be included in the National Curriculum.

We also call for the proposed new science curriculum not to water down information on human reproduction, and to preserve the place of human rights, including women’s rights, in citizenship lessons.
