Today, Finchley and Golders Green MP, Mike Freer, took representatives from the Jewish community to the Department for Education to meet with the Schools Standards Minister, the Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP. Under discussion were changes to how Relationships & Sex Education is taught in schools.
There has been some concern expressed by the community that new guidelines would have a negative impact on this area of education in faith schools. Mike thought it was important to raise this matter directly with the Minister
Commenting afterwards, Mike said, "The meeting was extremely productive with the Minister and Chinuk UK finding common ground and agreeing a way forward."
