Children and young people aren’t being taught about consent in school

A survey of children and young people conducted by the National Children’s Bureau, has found that almost one in three say they did not learn about consent at school.

Their press release states:

Children and young people were even less likely to have learnt ‘what is good or bad in a relationship’; with only 43% saying this had been covered in sex and relationships education classes at school, with many describing a complete absence of discussion about real-life relationship situations and what you would do ‘should something happen’
