The School Gate Campaign has been informing people about the issues to do with the new Relationships and Sex Education teaching (RSE) that will be mandatory for all schools in England from September this year.
Our leaflets and website provide an introduction to some of the potential issues with this curriculum, together with information about parental rights and organisations that parents, carers and other concerned individuals can contact to get help and support regarding RSE.
In light of changes to do with the Coronavirus, public leafletting for the School Gate Campaign is suspended for the time being. Instead, the campaign has moved online to provide more information to parents about their legal rights and other issues regarding RSE. This way we will be even better prepared when schools resume.
CONTROVERSIAL LESSON PLANS
You may be aware of the protests outside school that occurred last year in Birmingham. These were about the controversial primary school programme No Outsiders that has already been delivered in many schools.
Here is a video analysis of some of the lesson plans in the programme.
Please pass this video link on to anyone you know who is concerned about this subject. *
A more comprehensive coverage of parental rights is planned for the future, but please note parents have a right to receive education for their children that is in accordance with their own philosophical and religious convictions (Human Rights Act 1998).
Please let others know about what we are doing. If you have any comments or queries, please contact us at www.schoolgatecampaign.org.
Thank you for your support.

* No Outsiders is marketed as an Equalities Act programme (none of which is required to be taught in schools). The Equalities Act, written to address discrimination in the workplace, has nine protected characteristics. One analysis of the No Outsiders programme observed that it focussed effectively zero % on age, zero % on pregnancy, zero % on race and zero % on religion. No discrimination there, then.
