Before It’s ‘Too Late’ British Schools To Start Giving 11-Year-Olds Sex Consent Lessons

Schoolchildren as young as 11years in British schools are to be given classes so they can learn the difference between rape and consensual sex.

  • Published:

Children from the age of 11 are to be taught the difference between rape and consensual sex, new government plans.

According to New York daily reports, the class is said to begin later this year.

They are being launched amid fears that teenagers are coming under unprecedented pressure to have sex at an early age.

The British government has commissioned formal guidance that tells teachers that courses should begin "before young people are sexually active, otherwise it is too late."

Inevitably, some of the fears about children coming under pressure to have sex earlier comes through social media.

Officials in the UK are worried about explicit images being circulated online and being seen by youngsters, as well as the growing number of reported revenge porn incidents.

The children will attend up to eight lessons.

Some critics though complain that the government is being alarmist, reports the Sunday Times.

Andrea Williams, CEO of Christian Concern, said: "Why should we be exposing 11-year-olds to these things?"
