The article offers information on the debate regarding sex and relationship education (SRE) bill in Great Britain. According to politician Chris Bryant, SRE needs to be a part of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) curriculum which should be taught to girls and boys aged 13-16. However, teachers in primary and secondary schools are worried in providing such education as it is an informal part of PSHE. It mentions that SRE would be delivered through education-health partnership.
