Schoolchildren as young as four will not be taught about gay and transgender relationships as part of new compulsory lessons, ministers have insisted. New curriculum guidelines announced by the Government will introduce dedicated lessons about relationships, keeping safe on the internet and looking after their own mental health. Pupils will learn the link between physical and mental health, with lessons focused on the importance of getting enough sleep, the dangers of sexting, and spotting anxiety in their friends.  Speaking on ITV’s Good Morning Britain on Monday, Education Secretary Damian Hinds said that primary school pupils will be taught about “respectful relationships” and respect for all kinds of people. When asked if this included teaching children as young as four or five about gay and transgender relationships, he said not at that age.
