Talmud Torah London, a fee-paying boys primary school in North London that primarily serves the Orthodox Jewish community, applied to the Department for Education (DfE) for permission to expand its offering to years seven and eight. Government guidance for relationships and sex education (RSE) states that secondary (which covers years seven to 11) pupils must learn about the LGBT+ community, with individual schools given discretion as to what age this is introduced. The school told Ofsted inspectors it “has no intention of ever referencing those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender as part of PSHE education or relationships education”, The Telegraph reported. It did plan on including the “encouragement of respect for other people”, particularly in regards to protected characteristics identified in the Equality Act 2010. Despite noting other positives about the school, the proposed curriculum covering relationships and sex education did not meet inspectors’ standards.
