What is going on over there? Is this really necessary? Are the kids so out
of control and/or the parents so out of touch that the schools have to pay
for full time sex nurses? Who pays for this ... all the tax payers, or do the
parents in the UK pay the schools as their children go? Either way,
someone is paying for someone to discuss 'sexual identification' with your
children and give them sexual orientation guidance (point them to the
nearest gay bar if they think they are gay??).

Also - 'nurses are the best people to provide this service...'??
How about parents? Shouldn't parents know what is going on
medically with their underage children?? I understand that if
a child is at risk at home then the parents can't be involved, but
normally this isn't the case and the parents should know what
medical things are going on with their children ... children that
they are responsible for.

Every school in England will have a nurse who can arrange secret
abortions and hand out contraception, it emerged yesterday.
New guidelines will allow them to help pupils get the morning-after pill,
pregnancy tests and terminations without their parents' knowledge.

The new guidance to primary and secondary school heads says that
nurses will be able to "provide contraceptive advice to pupils and
emergency contraception and pregnancy testing to young women".

It claims that nurses are the best people to provide this service because
they are "able to assess need and prescribe appropriate medication/
provide specialist contraception advice for the future".

They can also help pupils who are concerned with "issues of sexual
identity" for example if they are gay or bisexual.

Flyers Fan, this is probably going to come as a great shock to you...but i actually agree with you

Seriously, the things they are telling our kids in school....ah, well, they have no business doing so. As you said, parents should be the ones telling kids this stuff.
I remember last year, when my son was in year 5 (aged 9/10)....and a woman i know was complaining to the school, because the girls in that year had recieived a talk about periods and puberty, and i have no idea what was actually said, but it was apparently so distressing to the kids that one actually passed out, and the womans daughter was really upset.

The thing that disturbed me about that, was that the parents werent even aware that such a talk was going on in the first place. The only reason they found out, was because all the girls were going home, worried and confused about this info.

Schools take too much liberties some times in telling our kids things that should be left to parents. I am the mother of 4 kids and i would think it a failure on my part, if i left such stuff to teachers.

It's all part of the "Nanny state" that Emperor Blair and his cronies is trying to create. If his interfering is allowed to continue we will be nothing but drones blindly doing his bidding.

Those kids should keep it in their pants until they're finished school.
