CLASSES ON CONSENT are to be introduced in schools for the first time.

The Education Minister has ordered a full review of sex education in schools, with particular focus on certain areas, including consent and contraception.

The review will look at both primary and secondary level – it’s the first update to the curriculum in 20 years.

So in today’s poll we’re asking, do you think schools should teach about consent? 

Poll Results:

Yes - primary and secondary  (7049)
Just secondary schools (4525)
No  (1474)
