HC Deb 20 April 2004 vol 420 cc480-1W
Dr. Stoate

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what progress has been made since 16 July 2003 on establishing a set of guidelines on sex education for boys. [166546]

Stephen Twigg

We have commissioned the development of practical guidance to support schools in Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) for boys and young men. The guidance will be available in early June.

Additionally since July 2003, we have supported the production of a resource for teaching and learning about HIV and AIDS which addresses both boys and girls. Our programme of professional development which includes a specialist module of SRE will be available to up to 3,000 teachers in 2004–05. These participants are required to demonstrate that their SRE programme meet the needs of both boys and girls.
