A new study by the Sex Education Forum has found
that one in three secondary schools in England has sex health clinics that offer
condoms, pregnancy tests and morning-after pills to kids. The concern is that
some kids are as young as 11 years.
Additionally one in six of all secondary schools in
England offer tests for sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia.
"Many of the young people who are speaking to school
nurses about sex are children who wouldn't speak to their own parents, and the
fact that they are using the service shows maturity," said spokeswoman for
the National Confederation of Parent Teacher Associations. "It would be
wrong for parents to panic."
The report also said
that most tests that offer sex health clinics provided condoms or pregnancy
tests to pupils.
