A high court judge has granted parents in Wales the right to a judicial review over the Welsh Government’s decision to rollout Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) across primary and secondary schools in Wales.

The new RSE curriculum includes sex education down to age three, but removes the ability of parents to withdraw their child from RSE lessons. It also promotes trans ideology to children.

Back in April this year, claimants representing over 5,000 concerned parents and grandparents lodged papers with the High Court, after years of campaigning to remove RSE from the ‘mandatory element’ of the The Curriculum and Assessment (Wales) Act 2021, which starts this September.
