Children are to explore their sexuality as part of national curriculum
"Three families have revealed they will not allow their children to St Mary the Virgin Primary School in Hartfield, East Sussex, for the classes, which are meant to help the pupils 'explore' their sexuality."
"Up to 10 others have also spoken out about their concerns about the plans, which were announced on Monday by headteacher Emma Maltby."
"One mother, who asked not to be named, said the children should be 'left alone'."
"She said: 'I don't want my daughter being exposed to all this nonsense."
"'Kids need to be left alone when it comes to things like this, they just want to run around the playground not be told they need to think differently about gender issues.`"
"The classes, based on the Brighton-based Allsorts Youth Project, were proposed by the school in a bid to 'empower young people'..."
"Ms Maltby defended her decision to hold the 'transgender day' before the Easter holidays, saying it was important to raise gender issues."
"She said: 'As part of the national curriculum, we spend time talking to the children about British values of tolerance, respect and celebrating differences."
