NotinghamPost. Pupils at a school in Shirebrook are set to trial a new controversial sex education programme.

Shirebrook Academy, in Common Lane, is an early-adopter for the compulsory Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) material, which is due to be rolled out across the country in September 2020.

Pupils at the school will be able to give their feedback to the government.

The curriculum guidelines are changing for the first time in nearly 20 years to introduce new topics, such as mental health and online safety.

Other topics will include sharing explicit photos and pornography online, sexual and gender identities within families, and the need to respect and protect their relationships.

News of the lessons has sparked outrage with some parents choosing to protest outside schools elsewhere.

In Nottingham, there was a planned protest against the new RSE lessons outside Fernwood Academy in Wollaton.

Secondary school students will also be taught about the physical and emotional harm caused by female genital mutilation (FGM) and other forms of honour-based abuse.
