Mumsnet back Labour move to introduce sex education for five-year-olds

Parenting blog site Mumsnet is backing a bid by Labour to introduce sex education for children as young as five.

Shadow education secretary Tristram Hunt announced the proposal saying “age appropriate” teaching could begin at Key Stage 1.

He added it would help to tackle problems associated with domestic abuse and rape later in life.

Mumsnet said its users are backing the idea and feel sex education should begin in Primary School.

Rowan Davies, head of policy for the blogging site, joins Headline London to explain more.
