So the DfE are widely quoted as saying:
“‘Our sex and relationship education guidance makes it clear that schools should not promote any sexual orientation.” (emphasis mine)
“Clear” they say?
The document in question actually states:
a) It is not about the promotion of sexual orientation or
sexual activity – this would be inappropriate teaching. (Page 5)
b) “There should be no direct promotion of
sexual orientation.” (Page 13)
“It is inappropriate for youth workers, as with any professional, to promote sexual
orientation.” (Page 28)
What a difference the addition of “any” makes to those statements.
