- That the clause be read a Second time
The clause in question, New Clause 20, titled Personal, social and health education in maintained schools sought to introduce a requirement for personal, social and health education, including sex and relationship education, including information about same-sex relationships, sexual violence, domestic violence and sexual consent in maintained schools, city technology colleges, city colleges for the technology of the arts and Academies.
The clause also sought to alter the requirement relating to sex education in maintained schools, changing the requirement to "sex and relationships education".
