Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE)

Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE)

Whilst RSE refers to the new sexuality education movement in schools across the UK, there is a larger global movement that this is part of known as CSE or Comprehensive Sexuality Education.


Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) is a sexual rights based initiative that aims to implement its teachings into all schools worldwide.

The hearts and minds of children are extremely susceptible to whatever they hear, see, learn and experience. So much so that whatever information they are exposed to and absorb can have a lasting influence on their development into adult life. Sexual activists are becoming increasingly vociferous regarding the sexual rights of individuals and one of the most concerning developments of their agenda is their obsessive focus on the sexual rights of children. There are numerous protagonists asserting that children are sexual from birth or ‘from the womb to the tomb’. Due to this, they argue that children have the ‘right’ to experience sexual pleasure. To inform children of their sexual rights, these activists believe that children from a very young age have the right to a comprehensive education in sexuality.

In order to make CSE a global reality, the agenda has the backing of organisations from within the United Nations and European Union. The International Planned Parenthood Foundation (IPPF) is then main NGO behind it’s global implementation.
